Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity filling up

If you’re going to teach, train or tutor abroad, this session is for you. We will discuss important - and often invisible - elements of US culture that influence our behavior, communication, perspectives, and expectations in educational settings abroad. Our goal is to help you develop greater cultural and personal self-awareness, which in turn will aid in successfully interacting and communicating with new colleagues, students, and parents abroad. Learn how to decode culture now, spare yourself frustration later!
