Preparing to Live and Work Abroad

In this pre-departure workshop for American employees planning to live and work abroad, we will discuss how and why you should do the following before you leave home:

  • Learn about your destination
  • Prepare to be understood and to understand
  • Learn about the language (even when it’s English!)
  • Learn why culture matters

We will also examine culture shock–what it is, why it happens, what to do when it happens to you, and where to find help.
