How culture influences the way we speak?
Culture plays an important role in shaping the style of communication. Generally, people react to how we speak rather than what we say. The culture in which individuals are socialized influences the way they communicate, and the way individuals communicate can change the culture.

Suspending judgments, exercising empathy, and focusing on content rather than style can help overcome cultural barriers to effective communication.
What is the impact of cultural diversity in public speech?

How does your culture influence your communication with others?
