Study Abroad Learners' Metalinguistic and Sociocultural Reflections on Short- and Long-Term International Experiences
Schwieter, John W.; Ferreira, Aline; Miller, Paul Chamness
Intercultural Education, v29 n2 p236-257 2018
English-speaking learners of L2 Spanish who were taking part in a four-week study abroad program in Spain and Japanese-speaking learners of L2 English who were individually studying in year-long abroad experiences participated in the present study. Quantitative and qualitative data from language questionnaires and contact profiles along with open-ended responses revealed details on learners' engagement with and use of their languages while abroad. We discuss the findings and their implications for programs, educators and learners.
