Description

America has its own unique culture and rules. No matter how educated or hard-working you are, to succeed in America, it is absolutely necessary to learn the cultural norms that make America so unique. That’s where we come in.

This course is dedicated to helping  Asian immigrants and newcomers from other countries master the cultural skills that are necessary for succeeding in America.

The course is taught by two American lawyers–Ryan and Kristian–who share their knowledge and experience about what it takes to succeed in North America. The course contains over 100 videos which are separated into three complimentary sections: (1) American Culture; (2) Socializing in America; and (3) American Business Culture.

In the First section, we address American Culture with videos such as American History (The Civil War, the Great Depression, World Wars I and II, Vietnam, etc.), American Food, Politics, American Hygiene, American Drinking Culture, American Drug Culture, and What’s Illegal in America.

In the Second section, we address Socializing in America. Here, the curriculum dives into topics including Making Friends in America, Restaurant Etiquette, Cultural Faux Pas (i.e. Cultural “No-Nos”), Dating in America, and American Sex Culture.

Finally, in the Third section, American Business Culture, we use the knowledge you’ve gained to show you how to succeed in American business. Here, we cover topics such as Drafting a Resume, Conquering the Interview Process, Asking for a Raise or Promotion, and Giving an Unforgettable Speech.

While the course focuses on helping Asian businesspeople and students, the content is general enough that anyone looking to learn about American culture and business can benefit from our videos.

Join us and and unlock the secrets to succeeding in America as a newcomer.
