A day in the life of….
In this section you write about the activities and behavior of a fictional person from Germany as they go about their day. Essentially, you are demonstrating pretty much everything you have learned about the country’s culture this semester by telling a short story about an individual.
Give the person a common name from the country. Cover his or her activities and interactions with family members and people at work or elsewhere—the cultural behavior patterns you have been researching for your homework all semester. Give them a job that might be expected for someone from that country [see homework #2]. Include a photo of a house they might live in [see homework #2]. Extra points for having someone (correctly) use a proverb or idiom from that culture [see homework #3].
This section can be written from the third person (“Mikhail then greets his boss, “Good morning, Alexandr Ivanovich…” or in the first person (“When I talked to my friends about the soccer match, I was pretty expressive and loud, and stood pretty close to them”). It can even be in a diary format: “Dear Diary, today I…”
Use your imagination!
As you describe what this person does as they go about their day, make sure I leave with
descriptions/narrative that cover each of the following:
1. Behaviors or activities that demonstrate where that country stands on two Hofstede dimensions (remember the Hofstede dimensions and website?). You shouldn’t have to name the dimension, just give me enough information or behavioral “hints” so that I can tell if the country is individualist/collectivist, high/low power distance, high/low uncertainty avoidance, etc. [some of this may be in homework #2] 2. Communication style(s) or verbal patterns [direct/indirect, circular/linear, high/low context, expressive/reserved, etc.) [see homework #3] 3. Nonverbal behavior (what is expected, what is offensive, etc.) [see homework #4] 4. Greetings [may or may not be in homework #3 or #4] 5. Dining etiquette [see homework #4] 6. A comfort food or typical street food in that country [see homework #4] 7. Time (late/early, this is the monochronic/polychronic stuff). [This was not specifically asked in the homework but should be easy to find among the top research sites for the class] You may also note typical days of work/rest-for example, in Syria the weekend is Friday and Saturday.
