Think about your learnings about haptics, high/low contact cultures, nonverbal displays of affection/ PDA, paralanguage and proxemics. Watch the video clip again, taking notes about the different forms of nonverbal communication, the differences between the two individuals, and each person’s reactions to each other.

Respond to the following prompts in essay style (NOT Q & A):

  1. How would you explain the U.S. American boyfriend’s reactions to his Cuban girlfriend?
  2. How would you analyze the Cuban girlfriend’s reaction at the end of this clip?
  3. Have you or your friends had similar “culture-bump” experiences that created nonverbal awkward moments or interactions?
  4. As a communication consultant to this couple, what advice would you give to the American boyfriend so that his reactions aren’t so negative? What advice would you give to the Cuban girlfriend so that her final reaction isn’t so negative?

Remember to define and cite your terms using APA formatting.
