What is intercultural training and what do I need this training for?

Intercultural training aims to improve the participants’ ability to interact socially with people from other cultures. The intercultural training consists of numerous brief situations, each describing a more or less incomprehensible reaction of the relatives of a foreign culture.

For each situation, several explanatory or behavioral options are offered. Explain which behavioral options in the target culture would have been likely or appropriate. It’s about learning how members of culture interpret the situation.

The aim of the training is to explain events as the majority of members of the culture would do. Intercultural learning is a form of social learning with the goal of intercultural competence.

Aim:

  • Building acceptance for other cultures
  • Understanding of one’s own cultural attachment
  • understanding others
  • Successful communication and cooperation with people from other cultures
