A semester of exhaustive research and a few all-nighters are par for the course when it comes to completing the senior Capstone project. But what happens when the course goes abroad? It’s not just the scenery that changes; the learning does, too.
When students study abroad, everything is new. The food, the transportation systems, the language and so on. And after long days navigating the culture, what’s better than coming home to a warm welcome, a hot meal and a cozy bed? These are just a few of the perks of living with host families.
¿Dónde Vives? This summer, students from St. Edward’s University used that question to spark connections with grade-school students at the Uruguay School in Valparaíso, Chile. The video exercise was an opportunity for the grade-schoolers to work on their English and for the St. Edward’s students to learn more about their host country.
