Oct 19, 2023

On October 11th, we hosted our latest webinar: Live Course Walkthrough with CulturaGo Experts. Liam Kelly, CEO of CulturaGo, and Marcello Francioni, Head of Education, took webinar participants through two of our courses, showcasing our online platform and highlighting the importance of cultural competency and its impact on course participants. The webinar also touched on the importance of cultural preparation for abroad programs, and how, institutions, namely, universities, TEFL and private companies can incorporate CulturaGo courses into their pre-departure programs.

Addressing Challenges

Liam and Marcello spoke to some of the challenges faced by international travelers, shedding light on how these can ultimately lead to difficulties adapting to their new environments. In order to address these challenges, we provide online cultural preparation courses. By empowering course learners with a foundational understanding of the dynamics that come with engaging in new and unfamiliar cultures, we aim to enhance cultural awareness, reduce adaptation stress, and improve academic or work performance, mental well-being, and motivation.

Diverse Audience and Tailored Solutions

Liam and Marcello went on to acknowledge the diverse spectrum of individuals our courses cater to. This includes cultural enthusiasts, students looking to maximize their overseas experiences, and professionals traveling for work, among others. The feedback received from this varied group once again highlighted the diversity of our learner base. Additionally, we shared how our courses can be customized to meet the specific needs of our partners, allowing us to align the content with desired learning outcomes and provide a personalized approach to cultural education.

Course Highlights

The core of the webinar featured an extensive walkthrough of our courses, with a special focus on the "Introduction to Japanese Culture" course. This course stands out as one of our pioneering online culture courses, designed with a destination-specific approach. We also introduced CulturaSkills, our latest course created to enhance intercultural and inter-identity competency, providing participants with an in-depth look at our course offerings and our platform.

As showcased by the "Introduction to Japanese Culture" course, all our courses offer a rich array of content, engaging activities, and insightful interviews.

In Closing

We believe that our courses support our commitment to growing the intercultural and inter-identity competency of our learners, and equip them with the tools necessary to thrive in diverse cultural environments.
