In studying abroad, you are immersed in a new culture with a different language, lifestyle, foods, customs, and traditions. Unsurprisingly, this kind of experience will help you develop cultural sensitivity, facilitate the opportunity for other cultures to inform your own practices, and stimulate you intellectually.
