Imagine, you've left your comfort zone. You moved to a foreign country that's 12 time zones away, most people speak a different language, and the lifestyle and culture are radically different, but you slowly make your way. And one day you meet a group of strangers that you identify immediately as your kind of people. And, just as you feel you have made it, an unspeakable tragedy occurs. How you react will change your life forever. This is 22.33, a podcast of exchange stories.
This week a Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) program participant from Atlanta, GA describes her experience while living in China and studying Mandarin. Learning to better communicate boundaries, having your Americanness challenged, and cherry-picking with the neighborhood, join us on a journey around the globe through international exchange stories. For more information about the CLS program visit https://www.clscholarship.org.
In this week's episode, we interview a Fulbrighter who went to Egypt for the English Teaching Assistant program. This program places American teachers in classrooms abroad to provide assistance to local English teachers. Fulbright ETAs help teach the English language while also serving as cultural ambassadors for the United States. The age and academic level of their students vary by country and from kindergarten all the way to the university level.
