Research into intercultural communication explores how people from different countries and cultures interact and communicate. It includes the study of nonverbal communication. Researchers in our group focus on the skills and knowledge fundamental to successful intercultural communication. Apart from mediation between different cultures and languages, a particular strength in our area is internet-supported intercultural communication, including tandem learning and telecollaboration between multiple online parties.
