Abstract

Study abroad, or the opportunity to have trans-national educational experiences, is a feature of many language-learning programmes. There is considerable variety in the implementation of study-abroad programmes vary. Trans-national experiences are found not only in language-learning programmes but also in language teacher education programmes. There are some principles that teacher educators need to apply when designing courses if they want students to develop language and cross-cultural communication skills. One element of preparation should be with university teaching staff to raise awareness of how their own teaching style may not suit the learning style of their students, particularly non-native-speaker students. A second element of preparation relates to cross-cultural training. Possibly the greatest initiative that could improve opportunities for out-of-class language learning are programmes. The applications of these principles relate to the support that should be in place around trans-national education programmes, and the preparation that should be undertaken before the programme begins.
