Language vs cultural fluency
This hilarious story from an Afghan university student in the US is a great example of why clients with excellent English still need our help to adjust their skills to the U.S. workplace. Click here for the quick read from Public Radio International.
Ideas for how to use it in your work:
- Give it to Afghan SIVs or others as a way to help them be prepared for similar experiences.
- Tell it in job readiness class to start a discussion about the importance of asking questions and not just saying “yes, yes”.
- Use it to add humor when coaching a client who is projecting a know-it-all attitude an employer wants your help to address.
It will definitely make you laugh!
