I want to study abroad
the shopping is great
I want to venture overseas
later may be too late
I want to head to foreign lands
for adventure, romance, and fun
Take me across the ocean
to tropical beaches
warm waters, and sun
Help me get overseas:
a holiday with academic credit
I yearn to be “international” -
not jes’ a monolingual fool
So many different students
So many different goals
Reflecting on this
when you study abroad
what outcomes will your aspire for?
what will be your roles?
|| For some, study abroad is like more than a vacation . . . .
|| And for others, it is the most significant experience of their entire school lives.
|| So how can study abroad be made into an educationally valid experience?
|| (shaking his head while laughing) It is not like an industrial product! There is no exact universal formula. Although empirical research can offer guidelines, ultimately we need intuition and guesswork.
