Abstract

Although the number of US college students who participate in education abroad programs in Japan has doubled over the last decade, studies on pedagogical intervention for US college students who study abroad in Japan are still limited. The current paper discusses pedagogical supports that home institutions can provide to maximize US college students' linguistic and cultural learning during education abroad in Japan. Based on two empirical studies (Tobaru, 2019b), this paper focuses on pedagogical support that facilitates US students' social network development within a local community.
