Abstract

The purpose of this research focuses on the sojourners inter-cultural communication competence at the highest tourist destination sites in ANRS,Ethiopia. Qualitative research methodology is employed. Interview and observation are the major techniques to elicit the data. This data is described qualitatively. Thus, the research indicates that there are some opportunities and challenges among sojourners while sojourning and communicating across another culture. They are competent enough during their stay at the sites. But there are some problems of language with the ordinary people as well as misunderstanding and miscommunication. However, the sojourners try to use different mechanisms to adjust themselves with in the new settings to endure with some of the challenges.
