ICD Meet-up 20/21 oct: INCREASING CULTURAL AWARENESS THROUGH YOUR HOMESTAY

This week in ICD Meet-up
Last week students reflected on their expectations and experiences making connections with people in Spain, whether host families, American classmates, Spanish classmates, intercambios, mentores, friends of intercambios and mentores, gym mates, internship colleagues, as well as their connections to friends and family at home or around the world. Most students seemed pleased with the number and nature of their relationships here in Spain.
Next week we’ll focus on your homestay as a source of intercultural learning. Research suggests that developing relationships of a certain kind with the host family contributes greatly to students’ overall adaptation and satisfaction.What is working for you in this regard? What would you like to be different. As always, you may also comment on any other aspect of you experience in Spain. I look forward to seeing you next week.
