Improve communication with international students
International study presents students with multiple challenges. They must function in a new university in a country and culture that is new to them. In addition to adjusting to the culture of Pensacola (new foods, new customs), international students must adjust to the academic culture at UWF, which may differ in many ways from their home institution. One of the most obvious challenges these students face is the challenge of functioning in English.
The International Student Office offers suggestions to help improve communications between faculty and international students
This tip is based on teaching strategy suggested by Rachel Errington and Erin Stanley, International Student Office.
