This course deals with the theory and practice of intercultural negotiation from a linguistic point of view. In this course, we will make use of scientific texts (English) and exercises, the students will develop a theoretical and practical understanding of the negotiation situations in which different cultures and languages play a role. A special focus is on the use of English in negotiation situations, especially those situations in which English is the lingua franca.
