What others are saying…
We are so thankful for our time at CIT, it was the practical completion we both needed for our missions degrees. We learned so much about ourselves and the Gospel and I feel like we arrived on the field with realistic expectations.–Mel, Cross-Cultural Worker, Ukraine
Having been through other training conducted by large international companies, I found the CIT training to be well-structured, taught well by experts in their topics, and peppered with great simulations and exercises. CIT left me wanting more, instead of thinking it was a waste of any of my time, which I have felt about other training in the past. I can’t imagine going to the field without it. All 3 couples on our field will have gone through it.—L.M.—Saipan
This course totally changed my ideas about language learning. I feel equipped to develop my own language program. Now that I know and understand my learning style and have language acquisition tools, I believe I will be successful in both language learning and understanding my new culture. –J.H., Cross-Cultural Worker
I appreciated the vulnerability of the facilitators. They all had things to say that were incredibly beneficial, eye-opening, and encouraging. I feel prepared for language learning. Before this course, I was utterly terrified! I know it will be hard, but I’ve been given valuable tools to use and now know that much of the process can be fun.–Julie, Cross-Cultural Worker, Central America
