Learning the Rules: Language Development and Cultural Adjustment during Study Abroad.
Bacon, Susan M.
Foreign Language Annals, v35 n6 p637-46 Nov-Dec 2002
An ethnographic study examined the language development and cultural and academic adjustment of a student in her first semester of a year-long program in Mexico. Data reveal that the most dramatic change in her proficiency came about as she learned the rules, both societal and academic, that allowed her to function within the culture and that there was a dynamic interplay between experiences inside and outside the classroom.
