Abstract

This study examines problems encountered by foreign instructors teaching in American colleges. Fifteen Chinese born instructors teaching communication in American colleges are asked to answer a questionnaire containing twelve open-ended questions. Recurring themes are coded and answers are organized into three categories: cultural difference, linguistic level of understanding, and relationship development. The three categories are used to explain problems that are experienced by foreign instructors in the United States of America.
