5 Affordable Ways to Learn a New Language

Meghan Tankersley | April.28.2014

It seems I’ve always been told that America is notorious for being a nation of monolinguals. I’ve been doing some research and it’s not as easy to find the exact number of how many Americans speak more than one language.

5 Reasons Why I Want to Intern Abroad

Meghan Tankersley | April.15.2014

1. Gain more professional experience while traveling

The reason why I want to have an internship abroad is to gain more professional experience, while being able to travel at the same time. I am currently about to finish my two year degree and plan to transfer to a university next fall. I felt that having an internship this summer would allow me to gain more experience in the field I am most interested in, which is Event Planning. So, by next fall I will have a better understanding of which path I want to head towards. I’ve always wanted to travel and knew that one day I would be able to. Before I knew about interning abroad, I was planning to study abroad for a semester. However, after I learned more about Global Experiences and the different programs they offer, I have decided that interning abroad would be a more beneficial experience for me. Having an internship abroad will allow me to develop more professional skills in a work environment that is different from what I am used to, while being able to experience the country and its culture.
