Cultural Misunderstandings: The French-American Experience

by

Cultural Misunderstandings: The French-American Experience Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Raymonde Carroll presents an intriguing and thoughtful analysis of the many ways French and Americans—and indeed any members of different cultures—can misinterpret each other, even when ostensibly speaking the same language. Cultural misunderstandings, Carroll points out, can arise even where we least expect them—in our closest relationships. The revealing vignettes that Carroll relates, and her perceptive comments, bring to light some fundamental differences in French and American presuppositions about love, friendship, and raising children, as well as such everyday activities as using the telephone or asking for information.

Synopsis:

Based on the author's experience and many interviews, explores cultural differences and how they affect relationshios and attitudes toward love, friendship and family.
