Cross-Cultural Training for Business and the Professions: Rationale and Program Design and Development.
A discussion of cross-cultural training in the context of business and professional education outlines the need for such training and proposes methods of designing and implementing it within foreign language courses. Four segments address specific aspects of development for such courses. The first looks at procedures used to determine the type of intercultural instruction required. The second lists and explains specific objectives to guide the program, and the third part focuses on themes and topics to be included. The fourth part considers the structure of a special purpose culture component. Appended materials include sample questionnaires for assessing the language and cultural needs of students and professionals and a model cross-cultural syllabus. (MSE)
