The course aims to throw light, from a pragmatic and analytical angle, on the processes involved in communications between people of different cultures, and to offer tools that are appropriate for such an analysis.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1. Sensitize the students with the intercultural communication and, overall, with the intercultural dimension of the contemporary companies ;
2. Determine the requirements of a pragmatic approach of the situations of communication between people of different cultures.
