      Dear Tesia:

      Thank you for participating in the quiz. I would suggests that you register on the culturebump website. When you login, you will automatically go the Toolkit for Culture and Communication. You may go through all of the modules and then take the test again. If you are interested in a private course, Auburn University will be offering an on-line course. I will let you know when it is available.

      Again, thank you for participating.
