Testimonial

"My goal was to understand the American culture from a teacher who was born and raised here and truly understands how to communicate her culture to people with different backgrounds. My teacher designed the curriculum accordingly and offered me plenty of valuable insight."

cultural competence globe in handWhat do you need to be successful in the United States?

You know that English skills are important if you want to be successful in the United States. However, English skills will give you only 50% of the tools that you need to succeed. The other 50% of your success comes from cultural competence.

 

 

 

What is culture?

Culture is made up of our basic values and assumptions about life. It is the way we communicate, how we solve problems and what we consider logical. We might believe that these values and assumptions are shared by people from different parts of the world but in fact, they usually are not.

What is cultural competence?

Cultural competence is a deep understanding of your own cultural identity, cultural values and how those values influence the way that you interact with people in the United States. Through cultural competence, you can also gain knowledge of American cultural values and communication styles and learn how to use that knowledge to be more effective in your professional and personal interactions in the United States.
