Have you ever thought about a study abroad program? I studied abroad in France ( haven’t talked to you guys about that yet!) and for the next few weeks I’m going to highlight different travelers that have studied abroad. You can study abroad in high school, college, or after college (like I did!). There are really no limits to studying in a different country.
The White House recently held a Summit for Travel Bloggers to raise awareness of the study abroad possibilities for students. Since my friends and I are global citizens, we thought we would share our experiences in hopes of shining a light on studying abroad. My first interview is with Adedana.
1. Where did you study?
2. Why did you choose that location?
3. What program did you use?
4. How long were you gone?
5. Did you speak the language of the country you studied in?
6. Did you stay with a host family or other accommodations?
7. What were your goals for studying abroad?
8. How did studying abroad affect your general perspective of people/life?
9. Can you remember a funny anecdote from your experience?
10. Would you recommend studying abroad and why?
