This is the Inter-English blog, a project of Jane Falk, PhD.
Dr. Falk is a linguist, consultant, trainer, executive coach and keynote speaker specializing in the “hotspots” of cross-cultural interfaces. She believes that the missing link in cross-cultural communication training is learning to modify one's English in order to be understood by a foreign-born speaker. This blog will give you the tools to do that.
Please comment, ask questions, supply anecdotes. I am eager to hear from both native-born speakers and English-learners.
