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:
- Information about the country, introduction to culture and history
- The norms and values of the society
- The role and the characteristics of communication
- Social contacts: Friends and acquaintances
- Women - life and role
- Leisure activities and customs
- Eating and drinking
- The relations at work and management
- Doing business in the country
- Studies and professional training
- Norms, laws, and taboos
