Additional Questions
Give three reasons why you want to participate (no more than words):
What are your expectations (no more than words):
What are your experiences living outside of the USA (no more than words):

Part of the experience of international travel includes different cultural norms. For instance, in Russia in the summer there are typically several weeks when whole areas of cities do not have hot water. It is unusual for a university building, hotel or private apartment to be air conditioned. Local residents normally use public transportation, walk long distances, and are accustomed to waiting a long time when they have to deal with a bureaucratic hurdle. As a participant in this overseas study program, you will experience day-to-day life as local residents do. (A) Will you be able to set aside your American expectations and welcome that experience, or (B) will it be difficult for you?
List the reasons for wanting to take the Global Environmental Issues/Language Learning Field Experience course and describe how it fits into your academic curriculum/program of study.
