Abstract

The exercise is an opportunity for students to participate in a cultural fair, wherein different countries set up stalls to display their history, culture and heritage with pride. This is really a cultural fair with a difference. It allows students to gain knowledge and understanding of a new culture. In addition this exercise also aims to make students more aware of their own culture by seeing the similarities and differences between cultures. Students need to be aware of theoretical frameworks in the subject of culture such as those by Hofstede, Hampden-Turner, Trompenaars, Hall and Lewis. They should be able to be able to discuss different levels of cultures and also: (1) how cultures differ with regards to nature, time, relationships, space, and activity orientations; (2) how different cultures have different value orientations; and (3) how culture affects work behaviour.
