Students will most likely need some kind of support before studying abroad, either culturally or linguistically, in order to help them adjust to their new lives. This research proposes a method, via analyzing interview data, that details how to make materials for lessons and training sessions that prepare students for study abroad. It was found that students appreciated the training session, and felt that the information and strategies offered and generated were valuable.
