General expectations

1.  Working in pairs or small groups, students are asked to discuss their expectations about residence abroad, taking  notes under the following headings:


  1. What do I expect from my period of residence abroad? 

  2. What am I most looking forward to? 

  3. What are my main worries and concerns?

  4. How am I going to meet people?

  5. Do I have any expectations about what people will be like?

  6. What aspects of the culture do I think will be similar to or different from what I am used to?

  7. How do I think I am going to respond to these differences?

  8. How am I going to spend my time?

  9. How am I going to communicate with people?  Do I expect to find communication easy or difficult?

2.  Using the database as a resource, students are asked to find out whether their expectations are justified, by searching the database to find out whether other students' reports match their expectations.

3.  Students feed back their findings in group discussion.  Were their expectations confirmed or challenged?  How have their expectations changed as a result of doing the search?  Were there any surprises in the database?

4.  Students are asked to address the question: 'How do students' expectations affect their experiences abroad?', by doing searches which combine 'expectations' (under the 'How did I react?' menu) with other options on the database.  This can be done in class or as a homework assignment.  Responses are fed back to the group in discussion.
