Locate a person to interview who is living in your
country as a temporary visitor, such as a tourist or a student from
another country who will return home after a short period of time. Ask
for the person’s permission to use his or her name and quotations in the
paper and how to correctly spell their name. Prepare your questions
ahead of time and craft them well. The goal is to find out about the
person’s experience as a tourist.
Write an essay of 500-750 words about the experience. Do not write it
as a verbatim account of the interview. Use quotes as needed, but write
the paper as an essay. Refer to “Resource 2: Intercultural Communication
Interview.” Where did you meet the person? How long did you visit? What
did you learn? Was this person’s experience typical of what you read in
the textbook about how hosts and tourists interact? How, specifically,
did business people treat them?
Reflect on how much this experience stretched your comfort zone and how
this observation could affect your intercultural communication. If you
were going to do this assignment over, what could you do that would make
it more valuable to you and, perhaps, to the other person?
Prepare this assignment according to the APA guidelines found in the
APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is
