Students who travel to another country to continue their studies face different emotions and feelings. This is the case of the university students of the group called Spring Semester in the Andes who are currently studying in the Department of International Programs of CEDEI.

For this reason, students will attend to a lecture on culture shock, in which they will learn several details about life in Ecuador and the differences between the Ecuadorian and US cultures. Also, the young students will learn more about living with a Cuenca family, as they are staying with host families.

Since the students will stay for 4 months in this Latin American country, it is important that they learn several aspects of Ecuador to ensure an enriching and pleasant stay in our country. Additionally, during this week the students will take dance lessons and learn about current politics in Latin America.

Also, the university students will take classes related to their majors, learn Spanish and attend lectures and workshops about the Latin American culture as well.

It is important to note that this group is made up of six students; five of them come from several higher education centers in the United States and one student is from the United Kingdom. They will be studying at CEDEI from January 22 to April 24, 2018.
