The CulturaGo Community is live!

Going abroad is a great way to explore new cultures, meet new people, create unforgettable memories and reach new goals. However, planning a trip can often be overwhelming, especially if visiting a new destination for the first time. This is where CulturaGo comes in - our platform provides valuable information about what to expect and how to navigate the unknowns when traveling abroad to another country and entering into a new cultural context, whether it be for an international study experience, an internship, teaching English as a second language or merely a new adventure.

With CulturaGo courses at their fingertips, our community have access to vital information, including  insights into taboos, cultural norms, different communication styles, navigating new destinations, and much more, made from CulturaGo’s Team of social scientists, travel writers, as well as locals and expats in each destination - those who already have experience, knowledge and newly founded tips and tricks to share that made their experience abroad a winning success.

Recently, CulturaGo has developed and included a community as a new platform feature that allows members to connect with one another and share their cultural experiences. Anyone can join, receiving free access when they enroll in a CulturaGo course.

Let’s take a closer look at CulturaGo’s new community and its features.


Why We Love CulturaGo’s Community 

  • Included with Courses: Members can create profiles on the platform, which allows them to share information about themselves and their travel experiences. This includes things like their favorite destinations, cultural tips, and photos from their trips. A great way to connect with others with similar interests.
  • Friendly Members: The community platform includes forums where members can ask questions, share tips, and connect with other travelers. The forums cover a range of topics, including popular destinations, safety and well-being, and traveling as a student or on a budget.
  • Access Anytime: Members can join groups on the platform that are focused on specific topics or destinations. This allows them to connect with others who share their interests cultural and travel goals.

Top Benefits of the Community Platform

The CulturaGo Community offers a range of benefits for those going abroad. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Fizzle out Unwanted Surprises: When arriving in a new country, often, we are bound to encounter unknowns and surprises. With access to experts and a dedicated community manager, we help prepare members for what to expect, and provide them with insight into how they can make their new environment feel like home.   
  • Access to Local Knowledge: By connecting with others on the platform, members gain access to valuable local knowledge about their destination. This can include recommendations for restaurants, hidden gems, and cultural events.
  • Community meetings: Whether you are preparing, travelling, or returning, CulturaGo offers online meet-ups where members can connect and talk through current and upcoming parts of their journey. Hearing from others and sharing experiences enriches us all and may even shine new light on perspectives that remained unimaginable before. 
  • Make New Friends: Going abroad can be a lonely experience, especially in an unknown environment. The community platform provides opportunities to connect with other members and make new friends.
  • Travel Tips and Advice: The forums and groups on the platform are great sources of cultural tips and advice. Learners can ask questions and get advice from other travelers who have been to their destination before.
