HOW DID YOU ENGAGE WITH THE LOCAL COMMUNITY WHILE ABROAD?I engaged with the community the most through my classes at CEA CAPA. For my Spanish class, we had activities around the city that required us to converse with locals and immerse ourselves in the culture. In my sport psychology class, we visited the local university to learn from a graduate student researcher.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE CLASS WHILE ABROAD, AND WHY?
Unexpectedly, my favorite class was Spanish for beginners. Not only was it extremely helpful to apply the subjects we learned, but the class helped me better understand the culture as I witnessed it. I learned a lot of valuable phrases that helped me communicate with locals during daily tasks like shopping or eating at a restaurant.
