Prepare for Success

The Modern Languages department at the University of Southampton have created an excellent tool for students who are studying abroad called Prepare for Success. This interactive website has a series of activities where students can learn what it is like and how to prepare to study in a new country using a new language.

Each unit engages students with a video or audio clip and a series of questions. Students will receive feedback and pointers on what to expect and how to adjust to studying abroad.

Here is a short video that outlines how students can use this valuable resource.
