"You start to gain a global perspective the more you come in contact with different people and cultures. With this class you learn about a new culture, and you get to experience it first-hand. The more you challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and to really immerse yourself in new cultures, the deeper your sense of compassion, tolerance, and understanding becomes.”
