ABSTRACT
This article reports on a study done among host students who were taught by American interns during an 8 week long internship in nontraditional settings in a sub-Saharan-African country. The findings revealed that the host students place a significant value on (1) the positive rapport that transpired between them and their American student teachers, which ultimately resulted in a change in their perceptions of Americans prior to the 8 week long cross cultural student teaching experience, and (2) the teaching style adopted by the American student teachers in their host classrooms. The findings also revealed that although host students widely expressed admiration and the longing for the American student teachers' demeanors and their progressive instructional strategies, their communication pattern was rather a cause of concern for some host students.
