A guide to the classroom use of experience abroad for second language teaching focuses on the exploitation of materials and information brought back from a specific locale by students and/or teachers. Ideas are given for collection of realia, including menus and television schedules in particular, and for their use in the classroom. It is recommended that teachers select a specific town or city mentioned in the textbook and use it as a theme for overall cultural study. Suggestions are made for preparation for the trip, things to do immediately upon returning, and integration of the target culture into classroom instruction and grammar lessons. Sample realia from several cultures (Chinese, English, French, German, and Spanish) and ideas based on them are presented. News articles concerning one class trip to a French town are also included.
