Language and cultural training

The inability to adapt to the local culture and environment is one of the main causes of repatriation and an early return home.

Santa Fe Relocation offers cross-cultural communication training to expats because understanding the language and culture of the new destination are critical milestones of an overseas move.

Culture shock, a well-documented and recognised phenomenon, is eased significantly by cross-cultural training. Engaging with the local culture through speaking the language and deciphering the cultural codes and customs that make each country and culture unique can be the key elements of a successful overseas move.
