Speaking in the fancy language of the academy, experts extol the virtues of international study, saying, “It affords students unparalleled opportunities for immersion in cultures far different from their own, empowering them with mastery of language and more-than-passing familiarity with customs and traditions centuries, even millennia, in the making.” Students themselves tend to be more direct and pragmatic, noting, “I never again will enjoy this freedom to travel and explore, and potential employers will like seeing international experience on my resume.” For just a few dollars more than a regular semester at your American college, you can enjoy all the benefits of study abroad.
