The student introduction and survey link:   Hello, we are two Oak Bay students who are working on a project in a course called the Global Intercultural Skills Program. Our goal is to understand how students from different cultures communicate and learn with and from each other at our school. From the information we collect in this survey, we hope to know how to promote intercultural awareness and help build a more intercultural environment at Oak Bay.       In this survey, we define being inter-culturally aware as not only understanding our own culture but also appreciating and respecting other cultural beliefs, values, and perceptions. An intercultural environment is a place where people from all cultures are appreciated and respected.            https://goo.gl/forms/sQMocxn2o4LW5SUh1
