Overview Cultural awareness becomes central when we have to interact with people from other cultures. As TEFL teachers many times we have to work in different countries and environment. Over there many times we see, interpret things in a different ways, our ways. What is considered an appropriate behavior in our culture is frequently inappropriate in the country we are in. That?s how misunderstandings arise. But there are several cultural awareness techniques we can use: 1. Use formal greetings 2. Find more information about the history of the country we are in and respect it. 3. Be more polite and careful with comments and opinions or mention it in a relevant situation. 4. Help everyone in the team to be more comfortable around each other.
