Talking Culture: Bias, Blinders and Rules

Alan Headbloom is an award-winning language coach and interculturalist. He works online and in-person with foreign-born professionals in hospitals, colleges, and industry, helping them acculturate to American English and American ways. His tutorials and lessons work for US Americans, too! (Says the person who learned about US football and hand-shaking protocol in the US…from him!) Alan talks regularly about the importance of welcoming immigrants and the “insidious presence of ethnocentrism in our lives.”
