Culture shock can leave a person feeling out of place in an unfamiliar culture (Schaefer 60). Our diverse societies demand understanding and acceptance of other cultures. Learning and understanding these cultures before being exposed to them can help reduce culture shock. Our culture is what makes us different but it may also be what makes us the same. The Japanese culture is generally one of formal practices and behaviors.
However, asking people to complete them in a closed environment would problematize their responses. People would want to answer in a way to make themselves look better, than truthfully, because they are being closely analysed.

Although it is difficult to analyse the types of words that promote racism in newspapers, the interviewer could direct the participant in the right direction in the unstructured interviews. This would make the results valid and the coding sheet would back this up.
Bell (2007) reports her findings on communicating humor amongst native speakers (NS) and English as a second language speakers (L2). The results of Bell’s research shows that although humor seems to be a potential mine field of confusion between NS and L2 speakers, there tends to be an effort from both parties to ensure that purposeful humor is “constructed and interpreted in such a way as to avoid misunderstanding” (p. 30). Humor is one of the most difficult things for a L2 speaker to learn. A reason for this is because, a person’s ability to comprehend words and use grammar, is insignificant without understanding the necessary social connotations. Each culture and ethnicity is comprised of different ideas of what is funny and acceptable in humor.
He explains that when you discriminate, you should be able to tell the difference between things and know what each needs. In other words, he is trying to say we should be as open-minded as possible, “but not so open-minded that our brains fall out.” However, Americans use the word discriminate by making others appear lower than themselves, and thinking less of them because they are lower. This should be recognized as prejudice. This essay makes discrimination very clear and shows how it should be used in American society. Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions in order to convince the men her time that women should be equal and have the right to vote.
However, if Dr. Simons was Jewish, he should take extra precaution to explore how the racist comments about Jewish people could lead to resentment toward the Ralph. He should try to work out these feelings by talking to a trusted colleague so that his actions do not harm the client. In summary, if Dr. Simons chooses not to disclose his background this will likely cause more harm than benefit to the client. Rather than directly challenging Ralph about the racist comments, Dr. Simons should try to explore how the racist comments relate to the presenting concerns and develop interventions accordingly.
Futhermore, the concept of friendship is often viewed quite differently in diverse cultures (Spinks & Wells, 1997). International students could also be confused about the friendship because the American students may be more interested in more superficial socializing than in becoming close or trusted friends (Liu, 2009; Andrade, 2006). A better understanding of each other’s cultural background
(yourlogicalfallacyis.com) According to Cotteral(second edition 2011 page 117) emotive language uses words phrases and examples that intend to provoke an emotional response.

Specific Comments: Pg1, P1, L4 - Because “The SAT” alone is a fragmented sentence, I would consider that you link it with the sentence before it so that it reads “tradition: the SAT”. This would both be grammatically correct and maintain the flow of the piece. Pg1, P1, L4-6 - In my opinion, I feel as though this sentences read a bit awkwardly and would benefit from some slight restructuring. It seemed a little confusing to what the “intelligence” was referring to, and clarification seems necessary for the reader. One possible correction could read: “This standardized test does not truly measure intelligence and is biased against minorities and people of lower economic status.
Persepolis and American Born Chinese both use humor effectively but they are in some way different.

On the other hand, American Born Chinese novel is in color.
