Is Being There Enough? The Effects of Homestay Placements on Language Gain During Study Abroad.
Rivers, William P.
Foreign Language Annals, v31 n4 p492-500 1998
Comparison of language proficiency gains in Russian study abroad in Russia looked at homestay versus dormitory residence. Statistical analysis of the American Council of Teachers of Russian students records database, which contains proficiency data on 2,500 study-abroad participants, was used to compare gains made in speaking, listening, and reading by the two groups. Results showed more gains by dormitory participants. (Author/JL)
