Visiting a courthouse, jail, military installation, school, retirement home, and other ethnically-diverse institution.
Visiting a part of town that is culturally different.
Visiting or attending a service of another world religion.

Going to a shop that is associated with a particular ethnic group.
Visiting a school that teaches ESL (English as a Second Language) or ELL (English Language Learners).
Visiting an international student organization at a college or university.
Visiting or socializing with people from other cultures.
To add perspective and context to your presentation, gather resources such as informal interviews with people from the respective culture, corresponding text readings and articles, Web sites, and media presentations.

Compare the culture you engaged in with your own.
Discuss the potential impact cultural differences have on communication.
Analyze how nonverbal communication affects intercultural communication.
