Abstract/Artist Statement

The purpose of this study is to examine the commonalities and differences among Asian cultures through the use of proverbs. By analyzing chosen proverbs from Vietnam, Cambodia, Nepal, Thailand, Philippines, China, India, and Japan, it was evident that there are many common values and beliefs among Asian cultures. The Internet as well as close family and friends became great resources while conducting this research. They helped to support our initial assumptions that Asian cultures value conformity, honor, intelligence, and education. After analyzing the results, we were better informed about ideas that were significant to these specific cultures. This helps to create better intercultural communication skills.
