Click on this link to Kwintessential Language and Culture Specialists. The site may take a moment to load, so be patient! You will find a selection of 20 or so cultural awareness quizzes. Choose one or two that look interesting to you. (Hint: You will learn the most if you choose a general quiz, or one that concerns a country with which you are not familiar, and then choose a quiz that tests your knowledge of a culture with which you think you are highly familiar.) After completing the quiz(s), address the following questions in a 3-4 page essay:
•Which quiz(s) did you take?
•Were you surprised at your score?
•What strengths do you think you have in the area of inter-cultural awareness?
•What weaknesses are you able to identify?
•Create a plan of specific steps you can take to build on your strengths and improve areas of weakness.
•Why is it important for managers to increase their levels of cultural awareness?
