INTERCULTURAL EXPERIENCES AND HOW THEY CAN LEAD TO PARENT-EDUCATOR PARTNERSHIP CHALLENGES
In the case of Arno, it is demonstrated that it can be hard to communicate without speaking the same language. Therefore, it is important to appropriately address misunderstandings caused by language barriers, cultural influences on language or failure in communication. For example, if a child is trying to convey to an educator that she would like an item that is out of reach and the educator is unable to understand, the child may end up feeling confused and frustrated. Arno may feel exclusion from the children, as he is unable to use verbal communication to interact (Harris, 1969).
