Excellent module for intercultural communication. Nice format, both graphic and text forms. Well serves the purpose of helping Chinese language learners become more aware of the cultural differences. Easy to navigate. It certainly would be very helpful cultural resource for Chinese language teachers and students if more content could be created.

Technical Remarks:

It has effectively used most of the basic web page creation skills. It would be even more facilitating if the text could be put into Chinese or users have an option of reading Chinese. Hyperlinked sound files to the text would enhance it even more.

This learning object is an excellent representation of intercultural communication. I suggest that it can also be used in the early years classroom to teach young student about people's feelings and communication.

Technical Remarks:

Clear picture, very easy to navigate, excellent illustration
