Inspired by a funeral scene in the recently released film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Elizabeth Vennekens-Kelly – author of Subtle Differences, Big Faux Pas: Test Your Cultural Competence (Summertime 2012) – pauses to ponder the different ways we all celebrate life or mourn death.
She writes in her latest blog post [May]: “Subtle Differences, Big Faux Pas highlights traditions related to the beginning and end of life. The death of a family member is a particularly difficult time for an individual. Being able to comfort and support them is appreciated. This is not the time for a faux pas.”
Subtle Differences, Big Faux Pas: Test Your Cultural Competence is a fun, light-hearted, but very important, first step towards understanding intercultural nuances. The book includes quizzes to test your intercultural awareness.
