The increase in international business and in foreign investment has created a need for exec utives with knowledge of foreign languages and skills in cross-cultural communication. Americans, however, have not been well trained in either area and, consequently, have not enjoyed the sa me level of success in negotiation in an international arena as have their foreign counterparts.

Negotiating is the process of communicating back and forth for the purpose of reaching an a greement. It involves persuasion and compromise, but in order to participate in either one, the n egotiators must understand the ways in which people are persuaded and how compromise is rea ched within the culture of the negotiation.

In many international business negotiations abroad, Americans are perceived as wealthy and i mpersonal. It often appears to the foreign negotiator that the American represents a large multi-million-dollar corporation that can afford to pay the price without bargaining further. The American negotiator’s role becomes that of an impersonal supplier of information and cash.

In studies of American negotiators abroad, several traits have been identified that may serve to confirm this stereotypical perception, while undermining the negotiator’s positio n. Two traits in particular that cause cross-cultural misunderstanding are directness and impatience on the part of the American negotiator. Furthermore, American negotiators often insist on realizing short-term g oals. Foreign negotiators, on the other hand, may value the relationship established between neg otiators and may be willing to invest time in it for long-term benefits. In order to solidify the relati onship, they may opt for indirect interactions without regard for the time involved in getting to kn ow the other negotiator.

Clearly, perceptions and differences in values affect the outcomes of negotiations and the suc cess of negotiators. For Americans to play a more effective role in international business negotiat

ions, they must put forth more effort to improve cross-cultural understanding.

How much will international students have misconceptions about the U.S.? In an effort to qua sh some myths, here are the four most common stereotypes regarding college education in the United States.

Myth 1: American students are not as academically driven in comparison to other nations.

There are more than 3,000 universities in the United States. Some are highly selective, some not at all. The less selective colleges may consist of students who have little concern for their academic well-being, but in the more selective colleges you will find very committed students wh o will spend countless hours at night on their homework. This is a phrase in the United States c alled an ―all nighter‖ which is used when a student stays up all night to per fect an assignment. I n truth, it is an issue of pride.

Myth 2: American students party all night and day.

While American students do enjoy the freedom to explore a full lifestyle, they are also expect ed to keep up with very high standards of social behavior and academic excellence. International students often join clubs or organizations where they can become involved in exciting programs both on and off campus.

Myth 3: American students are all rich and can afford a college education.

Although a certain percentage of American college students do come from wealthy families a nd have large expendable incomes, most American college students come from moderate-income families. Most American students enter college knowing they must apply for loans, work part-tim e, and earn scholarships in order to meet their financial obligations.

Myth 4: Most Americans (and college students) live in large cities which are crime-ridden with drugs and drive-by shootings.

Of all industrialized nations, the United States has one of the lowest crime rates. College ca mpuses are no exception. Safety is of primary importance to all students, parents, and staff at u niversities.

Universities centered in major cities have endless services to ensure the safety of all student s, from campus transportation services to on-campus police officers. Most of universities located outside of the city are very safe, and various precautions are made based on their demographic situation.

In the United States there are six million tennis players and twelve million golfers. These figu res would not surprise most people. But many would be surprised to learn that twenty million A mericans ride motorcycles. Few people realize that motorcycl ing is fast becoming one of America’s most popular sports.

Many kinds of people enjoy motorcycling. The average American motorcyclist is between the ages of twenty-one and thirty-five. He owns his own house, and has a wife, more than one chil d, and at least one car. He is a responsible citizen.

Cycle Magazine, a monthly publication with almost 280,000 readers, claims that about fifty-five

per cent of American motorcyclists are businessmen, with three per cent in the professions and nine per cent in government service. Such information is offered by motorcyclists in the hope of improving the general public’s impression of their sport. The public has tended to believe that al l motorcycles are ridden by wild, irresponsible, lawless young man.

There are several things about motorcycling that the average citizen dislikes. Motorcyclists oft en look dirty; in fact, they are dirty. On the road there is little to protect them from mud, crushe d insects, and bird droppings. For practical reasons they often dress in old clothing which looks much less respectable than the clothing of people who ride in cars.

Probably the machine itself also produces anger and fear. Motorcycles are noisy, though som e big trucks are even noisier. But trucks are big and carry heavy loads; they are accepted beca use they perform a needed service, making America move. Motorcycles, on the other hand, mak e an unpleasant noise just to give their riders pleasure. That is what is commonly thought.

Of course the danger of motorcycling also helps account for many people’s low opinion of th e sport. Its defenders, however, claim that careful cyclists are in less danger than is commonly b elieved.

As motorcycling becomes more common in years to come, it will be interesting to see how p eople in general feel about the sport. Perhaps it will someday become as ―respectable‖ as tennis or golf.

Schools in the U.S. generally do not have a specific teaching plan for teachers to follow, and they certainly don’t have a set of textbooks that are taught by all school districts throughout the country. That’s why textbooks vary greatly from school to school, and from teacher to teacher e ven though they are all teaching the same subject in the same grade. Some schools provide bo oks to use, but teachers do not strictly follow them. They only use them as a reference, and enj oy pointing out mistakes and wrong information given in the books. They often share their own p oints of view with their students. Teaching like this has many advantages. Teachers can bring ou t their expertise, fully elaborating their most familiar areas. Students are more interested in what they are studying. Also this flexible teaching style benefits students in the development of critical thinking skills and the ability to apply them. On the other hand teaching like this also has many drawbacks. It causes uneven study levels. It is even more so among different schools and distri cts. Students in the same grade do not usually have a thorough understanding of a subject taug ht in the same school year. The teacher for the following year would have to spend a lot of tim e finding out what the students already know or do not know in the subject before starting his/h er own teaching plan. Some parts may be repeated, resulting in waste of time; and other parts may not be covered at all.

Exams in American schools are much less rigid than those in China. Teaching is flexible, so are exams. Even if you memorized the whole textbook, it might not be of much help in the exa ms.
