Focusing on the actual experiences of L2 students who travelled from their homes to foreign lands as part of a faculty-led, short-term SA program, the author explores the linkage between intercultural awareness and sensitivity, language development (e.g., sociopragmatic awareness), and identity reconstruction in young adult L2 learners.
JANE JACKSON is Convenor of Teaching & Learning Development Committee and New Asia College Coordinator, Department of English at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
