Ten Reasons to Provide Language Training

1. Establish credibility with management and colleagues at the international assignment location.

2. Build relationships in a foreign culture—for the international assignee, spouse and family.

3. Facilitate acceptance, trust and respect.

4. Increase effectiveness, efficiency and productivity on the job.

5. Better understand and adjust to the host country's culture.

6. Allow for easier day-to-day living for the spouse and family.

7. Be able to communicate in times of stress, fear and danger.

8. Help to create a global perspective within the assignee's company.

9. Enjoy the experience of living abroad.

10. Diffuse the negative American reputation.
