Historical records tell us that interaction with other cultures is not a new phenomenon. Yet few would dispute the fact that this interaction has reached unprecedented heights in recent decades. Those of us in the education profession have witnessed an ever-increasing number of overseas students in our classes. Tourism operators would attest to the swelling numbers of overseas tourists. Government officials spend considerable time dealing with new residency issues. Multinational companies send employees around the globe in their never-ending quest for the ‘mighty dollar’. The list could go on. The world has definitely become ‘smaller’.
