It's time to make a plan.
What is culture?
(Why are you going abroad?)
(How do you learn abroad?)
The behaviors and values that distinguish one group from another.
All the things we learn growing up that we need to know to be a functioning member of our group.
The unique ways a group has adapted to its environment in order to meet its needs.
Step Three: Prepare Your Brain
(What's the right mindset to make it work?)
If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home. (James A. Michener)
1. Give yourself a project
2. Read about your country
3. Develop Skills
4. Talk to students who have gone before
Be flexible. Things will not go as expected.
Always try to see the upside of the situation.
Be analytical. Why are things the way they are?
Own the experience. How can YOU adapt?
How can you give back?
Growth also comes through negative experience.
The glass is half full, it's just the beverage you expected.
Stories where everything goes according to plan are boring.
Be humble. Embrace your ignorance. Learn.
