Study Abroad

How did you pick this theme or topic?

It was right after the study abroad session they were supposed to attend, so I wanted to use this topic for them to talk about their experience/ask the students who had already been abroad to talk about it, etc…

How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)

Interview in pairs
General discussion

How did students react?

They reacted well. They wanted to know more about each other’s experience and had a lot of questions.

Did they engage with each other and you?


What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
