Cultural Sensitivity in the ClassroomWhen teaching abroad it is important to remember you?re not in Kansas anymore (or whichever state or country you hail from). You are a guest in a new country, whose cultures and practices may be completely different from your own. Not only are you a teacher of English, you are a representative of your home country. As such, one should learn the customs of the country one is visiting in order to minimize confusion, embarrassment, or even hostility. Keeping culturally sensitive, both in and out of the classroom, can help make your transition to life in another country run much more smoothly. The first thing one should do is research on the country you are traveling to. If possible, this should be done before you leave your home country. Books at the library or book store, web pages, and, if possible, talks with people who have lived in the country you will be visiting are all great ways to learn more about the new country. Remember to take information found online with a grain of salt, and check more than just one resource. Sometimes people interpret things differently, translate something literally instead of by the meaning of it, or just plain misunderstand a culture they are not of. It would be good to check things from the country you are traveling
