About the Book

Whether you are relocating for a month or a year, moving to Tokyo or Barcelona, going solo or bringing your family of five, Cultural Crossroads has all the information you need to make the most of your expatriate assignment.

To be successful abroad, expatriates only need to change one thing – EVERYTHING!” – Dr. Ann Clark

Becoming an expatriate can be like starting life over. You effectively have a new job, with an entire new set of co-workers, whose culture and language are extremely different. You’ll have to find a new house in a strange city, in a very short period of time. Your family will need to find new schools, friends, sports, day care, language classes and grocery stores. And they may be unhappy about all of this change and blame it on you! Why would anyone take on this seemingly impossible task? Because it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you and your family to see the world and get paid to do it. Thousands of American families have made the transition to living abroad successfully. Some even choose to stay. Cultural Crossroads will not only give you a roadmap for the expatriate process, but real life examples of people who are “living the dream”.
