Training Overseas


My client is providing training in English, for 5 days, to delegates studying for an English vocational qualification. They are experiencing culture-related issues and are looking for ideas on how to overcome them.
Any practical advice would be appreciated.

  1. Working overseas
    I have delivered training and consultancy projects in quite a few countries around the world, including China and Russia. I have written a couple of short articles that I am happy to send you if you drop me an email – one is on my experiences of working in Kosovo, the other about use of language.
    You might also want to get hold of a copy of Martin Sloman’s new book ‘The Changing World of the Trainer’ and have a look at chapters 12 -14.

  2. Culture-related issues
    Hi Ted,

    It’s hard to comment without knowing a bit more about what those issues might be. If you could post more details that would be helpful and I would be happy to comment. Alternatively, feel free to call me on 07977 163655 or 0117 956 4442 and we can discuss further. I work as a cross-cultural consultant and run thinkingpeople and am happy to give some free advice! I worked in China for 2 and a half years in teacher training and now run courses for universities working with Chinese and Russian students.

    Best wishes,


  3. Cultural Dimensions
    Hi Ted,

    You might find Geert Hofstede’s Cultural Dimensions website useful.

    You can select the country of your choice to see a profile and report on it that contains information you might find helpful.

    Good luck,


  4. Training in the Mid East
    I live and work in the Middle East in leadership development which includes multi cultural training as well as that of regional nationals. I would be happy to let you know my experiences if you drop me an email.
