SUMMARY
A diploma work contains 80 pages, 2 tables, 1 figure , 4 books are a
source of it.
Key words: crosscultural communication, values , beliefs, cluster s ,
stereotypes.
In detail it is said about concept " values ", factors influencing
values, the meaning of values in intercultural communication and
understanding between different nations.
In brief it is mentioned differences between beliefs, values .
The actuality and novelty of a theme consist in the following points
.
Problems of the intercultural communication s and cultural valu es
are "young". Scientists started to consider them rather recently. In
Russia researches have begun only in the 80th years. In such a way,
there is not enough literature and materials on the given questions.
Therefore any new works and researches make the significant
contribution to studying these problems.
So in my work I tried : to research the influence of cultural values
to attitude one country to another ; to explore and to compare
Japanese and American patterns of social behavior ; to understand the
factors influencing values; to discover stereotypes between different
countries.
In conclusion it is noted that e xcellent knowledge of language is
only halfaffair for successful cooperation with other country. Also it
is necessary to know features of people of other country in
negotiating or their attitude to business. Also it is necessary to
take into account features of dialogue, etiquette, relations with
grownups and many other things .

interpersonal communication process, or any form of mass media or
other form of media.
