Working on the group assignment was easy, however, there were a few challenges while doing the assignment. The simple part about carrying out the group assignment was collaboration. Every team member put aside their differences and came together towards ensuring that the assignment was done. Another interesting part was trying to sort out the different words. The assignment was more of a puzzle game, one had to identify the central piece then slowly begin to move by putting in the rest of the pieces. It was so much fun to share different ideas and perspectives on the issue.

The challenging part was agreeing with each other. At first, everyone had their own way of doing things, everyone had a different suggestion on how to finish the assignment. Consequently, everyone wanted their idea to be implemented. It was very challenging to come together and agree on a simple way to finish the assignment. However, the team put aside their differences and everything was done. The group task was helpful towards teaching about cross-cultural communication because it involved working with people of different cultures to finish the assignment.
