CROSS-CULTURAL TRAINING SERVICES
Language is just one part of communication, but it’s far from the whole story! LTC offers cultural training for families, groups, and individuals. These programs are designed to show YOU how to cultivate meaningful relationships wherever you are, traveling or relocating. How do we do this?
Cultural competence begins with learning how specific cultural values affect day-to-day life and business. This starts with understanding how your own culture impacts you and then learning how that impacts your worldview. Through cultural competence training, we show you how to identify your own cultural values and those of the primary culture where you plan to visit or relocate. Through this process, you gain the confidence to make the relationships you need, and to keep them by avoiding key faux pas!
KNOWING MORE THAN JUST VOCABULARY
When you’re communicating with someone from a different country, or even just a different background, cultural mixups can create misunderstandings that could spell disaster for your business. LTC makes sure you have the cultural competence to go along with language mastery, so you don’t just talk- you truly communicate.
COMMUNICATING IN A GLOBAL MARKETPLACE
As the business world becomes more globally interconnected, the importance of building and maintaining intercultural relationships is even more imperative. Today, even small and regional businesses have a concern about being able to communicate worldwide, whether you’re talking to clients or bringing in employees who may not be native speakers of your local language. With LTC, you get a full slate of language and cultural tools to connect you to the world.
Our ENL (English and a New Language) team refers to her as a superhero and it’s no joke—she is truly amazing! Kitty does so much more than just interpret our conferences. She is someone who understands how school works and who can give us important cultural context, which is incredibly valuable.
Thank you so much to all of you for this workshop, I absolutely loved all the information you shared and will definitely continue to address cultural differences in class.
