Six Weeks in the Eifel: A Case for Culture Learning during Short-Term Study Abroad
Brubaker, Cate
Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, v40 n2 p118-123 Fall 2007
Based on findings from a recent study investigating how a group of undergraduate students defined, experienced, and perceived self-identified cultural encounters during a five-week stay in Mayen, Germany, this article suggests that short-term language and culture study abroad programs are fertile venues for exploring culture learning. After providing background information on the study, a model of culture learning that can be applied to short-term study abroad is presented. Then, three issues from the study's findings that support the need for integrating culture learning into short-term study abroad are highlighted. Finally, a way to conceptualize such integration is suggested.
