English Language Fellow Austin Pack held a workshop on how to improve intercultural communication at the Shanghai American Center in Shanghai, China. 81 local Chinese students, teachers, and other professionals attended the workshop.

Participants discussed common challenges of communicating with foreigners, identified stereotypes that Chinese have of Westerners and stereotypes that Westerners have of Chinese. After a long group discussion, everyone came together to brainstorm ways to overcome these stereotypes in order to improve intercultural communication and strengthen relations with Westerners.
