One topic we discussed during this semester that I found particularly interesting was nonverbal
communication. Before Cross Cultural Communications, I thought I had heard a lot about non-
verbal communication, but it turns out there is a lot more to non-verbal communication than just
facial expressions and gesticulations. Martin and Nakayama state that non-verbal communication
can come in many forms, including conscious and subconscious actions, tone, and even
appearance, and that these communicative techniques can “reinforce, substitute for, or contradict
verbal behaviors”. One of the aspects of non-verbal communication that I had not previously
considered, although was not surprised to learn, is that non-verbal communication skills are
learned almost exclusively through social interactions
