The improvement of one’s cultural literacy is crucial to succeed personally and as a society in the modern world of globalization. The website/blog “Cultural Do’s and Don’ts of Doing Business in a Foreign Country” was created to make this information search for BGSU students and faculty easier. The site specifically goes into detail regarding interacting with the cultures of the Emerging Seven countries of Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, and Turkey. The resource also discusses the categories of “greetings and conversation”, “social and home visits”, “business etiquette”, “dining”, “general information”, and “gender considerations”. Regardless of if someone is casually interested in these cultures or is preparing themselves for studying abroad, personal travel, or for business, this resource will hopefully help to make the research process more enjoyable and efficient for the reader.
