Experience of a Lifetime! Past Review

By (Elementary Education, Stephen F. Austin State University) - abroad from 08/07/2013 to 08/20/2013 with

Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA): Traveling - Student Teachers in Costa Rica

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
My experience abroad was absolutely worthwhile! I learned so much! I learned how different other cultures can be. The trip also opened my eyes to how hard it is to communicate with those who do not speak your language and how frustrating it can be. This opened my eyes to how frustrated many ELL students are in schools.
