2022 Intercultural Communication Experience

Friday, 23rd September - Friday, 30th September

Who are the Hmong?

The Hmong are an ethnic group of people with a specific language and culture.They have no land of their own, but are dispersed across South East Asia, in particular Laos, Thailand and Myanmar. They are primarily farmers, most living in small villages high in the mountains. Many Hmong have now immigrated to Australia, New Zealand and the USA. It is estimated that there are 4-5 million Hmong people worldwide.


The Hmong Christian Alliance Church will be hosting us during the facilitation experience. Students will make their own way to Cairns arriving on Friday 23 in time for dinner together. Students will be billeted in home stays with Hmong Christian families in which to experience an intercultural context. Saturday has been set aside for site seeing and relaxation. Sunday, the team will worship together and minister with the Hmong church. On Monday to Thursday mornings a facilitation will be run for the units M7227/ M9227 Intercultural Communication. In the afternoons, students will have the opportunity to be involved in various cultural experiences. Students will return home on Friday. This is a great opportunity to engage in an embedded learning opportunity.
