Cross-cultural training is training for cross-cultural communication and experiences. Preparing people to work outside their native country (sojourner training) is one aim of cross-cultural training; for example, Peace Corps volunteers complete cross-cultural training in preparation for lengthy assignments in another culture. Learning the host culture's native language is the most extensive cross-cultural training (see Intercultural learning).

Basic training modules include:

  1. Information about the country, introduction to culture and history
  2. The norms and values of the society
  3. The role and the characteristics of communication
  4. Social contacts: Friends and acquaintances
  5. Women - life and role
  6. Leisure activities and customs
  7. Eating and drinking
  8. The relations at work and management
  9. Doing business in the country
  10. Education
  11. Studies and professional training
  12. Norms, laws, and taboos
  13. Action plan for the first two months in the country
