Intercultural Communication: Communication between at least two individuals who are from different cultures.

It’s important to note the difference in culture between two individuals can be in their overarching culture or microculture, frequently referred to as subculture. For example, two people can be members of American society and share the same overarching culture. However, each person may belong to different microcultures (i.e., social groups, religions, regions of the country, etc.).

It’s common for a microculture to have its own vernacular or communication style that differs from the overarching culture, even though they share the same language.

A young man looking to share his light with the world. I enjoy reading non-fiction, helping others with public speaking, drafting speeches, and writing poetry. Over the past 10 years, I've had the opportunity to lead diverse teams of emergency responders, planners, trainers, and human resource professionals. Fun fact, I've lived and worked in 3 different countries.
