Introduction

Due to the final assignment from Interculture Comunication lecture ,an interview was carried out and after the datum were organized to evaluate some cultures aspects and compare then with the local country

It was used few tools that were learnt in the classroom with professor Frau Elkman such as, the ice berg theory , the analysis of individual or group thinking , low and high power distance , multi-task or one task oriented ,social or task oriented.

The interview was carried in English and in Germany language and it was very dynamic and it was possible to collect a lot of good information about its culture , building a parameter to compare with other cultures , such as , Germany and Brazilian.

The reason of china as a interviewed country is my deeply interest in china culture ,and its peculiar aspects which are most of the times vey different from occidental cultures and for this reason very interesting.

Likewise, the Chinese basically share the same adaption problems. Each one of us when move to a new place , must face a lot of challenges , but those challenges can be smaller when we ask for information or help from someone who had been there already.
