Feedback test

1. You worked really hard on an assignment at home and have to present your work in the classroom. One of your classmates is very critical and brings you down in front of the whole class. How would you react?
In an intercultural classroom some (Western) cultures are used to be very bold and blunt in their feedback. This, however, doesn’t mean that they are critical to you personally. They are only talking strongly about the ideas you presented. In our school, lecturers often organize peer feedback sessions. Make sure you participate actively and don’t be afraid to give and receive critical feedback. Just know that you learn most from mistakes. Nevertheless, compliments for good work are also very common!
