Alicante, SpainCOLUMBUS, Miss. – Gaining both a deeper immersion in language, as well as an understanding of another culture, were part of a recent study-abroad trip for a group of W students and their instructor.

 

For four weeks in Alicante, Spain, they spent time in the classroom honing their language skills and visited area cultural and historical attractions to gain more in-depth knowledge of the country.  The experience was led by their instructor, Erinn Holloway, a faculty member in the Department of Languages, Literature and Philosophy.

Participating seniors who went on the trip were Sarah McCharen of Thaxton, Brittany Prather of Booneville and Adriana Rodriguez of Starkville. The group also included junior Macy Robertson of Vernon, AL., W alumni Tiffany Chandler of Aberdeen and Lindsay Purnell of Tupelo and lifelong learner Jo Shumake of Columbus.  

Holloway said, “There are numerous benefits to studying or living in another country.  Spending time abroad allows individuals to learn a second language, to acquire the capacity to deal with challenging situations and to develop a deeper understanding of cultural differences.”
