Introducing Language and Intercultural Communication is a lively and accessible introduction for undergraduates who are new to the area of intercultural communication.

Incorporating real-life examples from around the world and drawing on current research, this text argues against cultural stereotyping and instead provides students with a skill-building framework to enhance understanding of the complexities of language and intercultural communication in diverse international settings. Readers will learn to understand and become aware of power relations, positioning and the impact of social and political forces on language choice and the intercultural communication process. This is the essential text for undergraduate students studying courses in intercultural communication for the first time.

Features include:

  • clear learning objectives to structure your study
  • end of chapter discussion questions to test your knowledge
  • highlighted glossary terms to provide a strong understanding of the relevant vocabulary
  • an array of photos including signs which make use of non-verbal codes and many examples that illustrate such issues as intercultural misunderstandings and the effects of culture shock
  • substantial online resources for students including learning objectives, suggested readings, links to media resources and real-world intercultural scenarios and activities. Additional in-depth instructor resources feature test materials, powerpoints, key terms, extended chapter outlines and sample assignments and syllabi.

About the Author:

Jane Jackson has many years of experience teaching intercultural communication and is Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Review:

[Introducing Language and Intercultural Communication] delivers a clear, accessibly written and above all comprehensive overview of the field. I know of no other single-author text that does this - Professor John Corbett, University of Macau, China

Introducing Language and Intercultural Communication is a very well structured, well researched and impressively well informed course book with an in-depth elaboration of the different aspects of intercultural communication. In combination with the companion website, which offers a variety of identity narratives, interviews and critical incidents, it is a highly recommendable tool that will effectively facilitate intercultural teaching and learning at different levels and certainly compares very favourably with the textbooks I have used so far in my teaching - Professor Guido Rings, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge

Introducing Language and Intercultural Communication by Jane Jackson is a state of the art introductory textbook to intercultural communication, that impresses with its comprehensiveness and convinces with its accessibility and ease of use. There is no doubt that this book will benefit instructors and students in equal measure - Professor Stefanie Stadler, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

With an emphasis on ethical Intercultural Communication (ICC) Jackson’s book provides a chronology of the development in the field and gives a comprehensive overview of different research paradigms in the area of ICC, as well as their applications in other fields of scholarship. I would highly recommend this book to both students and researchers working in the field of ICC - Dr Maryam Jamarani, University of Queensland

Intercultural communication is a notoriously complex phenomenon of immense importance in our contemporary and future worlds. This book succeeds in presenting that complexity in an elegant and simple approach while being neither simplifying nor reductive. For students new to the field, it introduces the crucial topics, concepts and theories in a logical sequence, but it also challenges them to think critically about what they read, in the best traditions of university education - Professor Michael Byram, Professor Emeritus University of Durham
