“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart."”
Cultural exchange programs expose students to people from different national, religious, geographic and socio-economic backgrounds. In doing so, these programs help students learn how to listen and communicate ideas to develop a greater understanding of diversity. In turn, students build personal relationships, understand a broader range of perspectives and develop language and interpersonal skills needed for communication and participation in our multicultural society.
