Collaboration request from Ioana Cionea, at the University of Oklahoma:
Participants needed for study on international students’ communication with host nationals

“We are currently conducting a longitudinal study in which we examine the factors that affect international students’ communication with host nationals. If you are an incoming international student (i.e., first semester in the United States) or if you know such students that you could forward this message to, we would appreciate your help with completing an online survey.

The survey has demographic questions, questions about expected communicate with host nationals, and anticipated experiences. Participation is completely voluntary. At the end of the survey, participants can enter a raffle to win Amazon gift cards.

Study Abroad-China

I will be leading students from the University of Oklahoma on a four-week Study Abroad program in Kunming, China, June 17- July 14. Undergraduate students will take a three hour course that I teach, “Communication in Chinese Cultures” and a three hour course in East-West poetry. Currently this program is open only to students at the University of Oklahoma. However, if you are interested or know of students who might be interested, contact me and we can look into what could possibly be arranged.

We took students to China last summer and had a wonderful time. The city of Kunming is known as the city of “eternal spring” and has great weather, clean air, great food, and fascinating cultures. It is located in Yunnan Province, Southwest China, home to many non-Han ethnic groups. We will take students to Lijiang, home of the Naxi people, and Shangrila, where there are many Tibetans. It’s a great place to spend the summer, learn about China, and broaden your cultural horizons!
