How did you engage with the local community while abroad?
I engaged with the local community by taking a culture class where we went to local shops and restaurants to experience the culture. I also tried as many local restaurants as possible. Also, I lived in an apartment outside of the main part of the city of Prague which allowed me to see less of the tourist side of the city.
what was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
My favorite class was a culture, food, and brewery class. I was able to try a bunch of different authentic dishes and learn about the history of them. My favorite part was visiting local shops outside of the main part of the city which allowed me to visit places that I would not have seen otherwise. The class also allowed for opportunities to go into the city as opposed to always staying the classroom.
