Activity 2 (W) Sit quietly in a busy public place with a variety of people, and view them for 20-30 minutes. Try to hear what they are saying without being obtrusive. How do their linguistic, cultural, and social differences affect communication between them and others, as far as you can tell? Discuss the types of languages, jargon, and slang that you hear. Can you identify them? Do people communicate with others outside their own cultural groups? Note the various types of people you see, and whom they are with. How are they dressed? Are there people who are dress differently from most? How? What other types of nonverbal communication do you notice? Research information on cultural nonverbal communication norms and provide some insights that relate to the people you see. Does anyone look poorer or richer than everyone else? Can you make any assumptions about their level of education or profession? Does gender seem to make any difference in their communication with others? Avoid stereotyping when explaining your answers and provide specific examples. This writing assignment should be 700-800 words, double-spaced using a 12-point font, and following APA requirements.
