Presentation title
Perspectives on cultural exchange and language learning through online mentoring
Presentation abstract
Mentoring assists the mentors and mentees, who are university students, in their adaptation to the university culture and learning. The Internet is mainly used for cultural exchange and language learning between the university student mentors and mentees from different cultural backgrounds. This study adopted a collective case study design that studied five sets of university student mentors and mentees to provide insights into their processes of cultural exchange and language learning using the Internet. Purposive sampling was applied in which ten university students from University A were invited to participate in the study because they practiced mentoring and represented various academic and personal backgrounds. Five of them were Malaysian students who enrolled in different undergraduate degree programmes at University A, while the other five of them were Korean students from different undergraduate degree programmes in Korean universities, who enrolled in a 4-week summer vacation programme at University A. Interviews were conducted to collect data, in order to unpack the university student mentors and mentees’ gains and struggles in using the Internet for cultural exchange and language learning.
