Perhaps the best part of studying abroad is the opportunity to learn a new language and culture. You will be forced to learn the mother-tongue of your new host country and will be opened up to differing perspectives and traditions. Aside from being a world-class traveller, you will also become a worldly student.
You’ll make lasting friendships abroad, studying and living with people who will share the same experiences and challenges faced with living and adjusting to life in a new country. Your network of friends will grow to include those from every corner of the world.
The night before I left for Japan, I wasn't scared, but I also didn't sleep; I knew I was about to do something really big. I now have friends not only in Japan, but also in France, Germany, New Zealand and Korea, to name just a few. I have a solid foothold in a language that was, one year ago, completely inaccessible to me. I had first-time experiences ranging from simple things like swimming in the ocean, or riding a bicycle, to things I could do only in Japan, like wearing a kimono and eating potentially-deadly blowfish (it was pretty tasty, too!) I learned so much, both in and out of the classroom, and every day really was an adventure. I am so thankful to Algoma U for giving me such an opportunity, and I can't wait to go back!
