An intro to communication and using a cell phone while studying abroad
Communication is a pretty important aspect of study abroad that usually gets overlooked. Don’t wait until you’re sitting in your room with no way to call your parents back home, and no way to get in touch with those kids you just met in class to finally start looking at ways to keep in contact. Do yourself a favor and look into cell phones/ Skype/ instant message/ etc. well in advance because once you leave the States (or where ever you’re from) there is a very good possibility your phone won’t work where you’re going.
