Getting to connect with the literature we were reading in a physical sense was really great. We read several novels, poems, and a short story, then were able to visit the places described in the literature; it was really rewarding, and I was able to connect with the literature on a deeper level than I would have been able to in a regular classroom.

I learned that although the UK is an English speaking country, there are quite a few cultural differences that you'd never understand until you went there. If there are that many misunderstandings between countries that share a common language and origin, imagine the struggles between two very different nations. We could all stand to do a lot less talking and a lot more listening when it comes to conflict.

My favorite part of this program was visiting the Scottish Highlands. I feel that I became very immersed in the culture of Scotland over this trip. By being exposed to the language, history, mythology, and politics of the country by Scottish people, I fell in love with Scotland.
