WLC 080 - THE STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCE I
This course prepares students for their study abroad experience through familiarization with the 10 most important cultural stress factors (cultural differences, ethnocentrism, cultural immersion, cultural isolation, language, prior cultural experience, expectations, visibility and invisibility, status, and power and control; Paige [1993]). Students' examining their own identity and culture is integral to this familiarization process. Students will also examine their own learning styles so as to facilitate their increased competence in language and culture. Finally, students plan ahead for their re-entry into the Drake environment.
