Today's world is becoming increasingly global. As more and more people travel, move, and work overseas it becomes imperative that individuals from all nations learn how to communicate effectively with one another. Because all cultures are different with various languages and characteristics, without the proper knowledge and training successful cross-cultural communication cannot occur. There are many angles from which to look at how effective cross-cultural communication happens and how to successfully understand and teach it. One angle is that of the social theory of symbolic interactionism. Through this theory it is possible to understand cross-cultural communication and training through a theory with which all interaction is fundamentally set.
