REFLECTIVE JOURNAL2IntroductionI have learned about the various type of culture differenced in this interculturalcommunication. I think, because of this lesson only, I’m able to understand and learn about thosedifferences. Taking a gander at this lesson, I trust that I can better comprehend the cultures thatexist and can value these distinctions better. Given these cultural differences, I hope I was able tounderstand and acknowledge cultures exhibit to maintain a strategic distance from conflicts. Ithink culture is owned and practised by a group of people or community, which is also a part oftheir way of living and it is inherited among the future generation. There is an extremelydiffering culture in Australia which separates a culture in another, for example, religion,conservative law, language, traditions, lifestyle and so forth. A specific lifestyle in a particulargroup of people is reflected by a word “culture”, in which honours, convictions, a way of theircommunication and was acting.Through characterization, people develop a commitment to ethnicity, beliefs of culturesand philosophy. A process where people used to learn norms and rules of various cultures andtheir belief is known as “Acculturation”. The basic culture of individuals affected by directcontact with new and different cultures, through estimation. Obviously, the culture, have a widerange of communication targets that the distinction can start things out, that language is,obviously, extraordinary cultures show up in the language that talks and get it. Truth be told, oneof the most acclaimed theories in cultural communication, language relativity hypothesis,contends that the language you talk influences your psyche and behaviour, and it is because ofthe distinctions in language that they think and in the way of thinking it makes unique.I this reflection, will be discussing the culture based on my weekly learning from week 2to week 5.
REFLECTIVE JOURNAL3Week 2: Intercultural CommunicationWeek 2 includes the learning of culture which includes the definition of culture, effect ofGlobalization, Enculturation. Ethnocentrism, norms and rules, communication barriers and muchmore. We will start with the definition of Culture.Culture: A culture is a structure through which communication is prepared andinterpreted. It is related to the way people live. When cultures interact, cultures should beadaptable to communicate effectively. An identity group is accepted and expected, whichincludes both verbally and abusive language, attitude, value, belief system and behaviour - apattern of perceptions related to the group. According to Freire, a culture can be defined as acreation of human.[CITATION Article \l 16393 ]. It is part of an environment that belongs tohuman being.[CITATION Last \l 16393 ].I have become self-aware of the fact that culture is thenon- biological parts of life. This is the way toward sharing and making meaning inside a socialframework. This social framework incorporates qualities, standards and approaches to act andhence in the culture, we are engaged with cooperating with each other, carrying on and speakingwith each other. Culture is something that is found out from guardians, schools, media and themore extensive group.In case that our way of thinking and perception are a part of "what is there", at that pointthen what is the connection between the change in the cultural condition and who are we?Callisterclarifies our environment gets its shape from people, and hence, one might say that thehuman brain comes to its shape in the environment made by a human.

It is derived from thefollowing fundamental definitions: There is an active relationship between people, throughcommunication, language, and cultural means that this communication is among the people ofdifferent cultures, where culture is the structured expression of human behavior in social lifewithin specific national and local background e.g. verbal, political, institutional, economic andprofessional. Cultural communication is recognized as both a competence and a concept.Competence of an intercultural is an active right by individuals of those qualities that add tosuccessful inter-cultural communication and can be defined as far as these three primarycharacteristics: behaviour, skill and knowledge. With regards to this document, the achievementof human qualities and skills, the possibility of enhancing inter-cultural communication, isparticularly observed as a segment of language programs, i.e. as a collaborator for the practicalacquisition of language.[ CITATION Moo96 \l 16393 ].Melting point - A country, location, or position in which the result of cultural integrationfirst incorporates the heritage and traditions of specific ethnic groups.AustraliaBritish and Irish settlement in the time of the culpritMost travel by the British after WWII, "Ten Pound Pom"Washington's sub-culture Anglo-dominated Perth first portMediterranean migration of 1950 - Greek and ItalianAsian migration from entire Asia in the 1970s
