Since 2008, the Department of Comparative Cultures has hosted up to ten students from Evergreen State College, Washington for three weeks a year. With an increasing number of Evergreen students wanting to join the program and the Department of Comparative Cultures being replaced by the Department of English Language Education in 2015, new challenges have arisen. This report describes how our research project sought to find ways of meeting such challenges, chiefly by clarifying the needs and interests of the Evergreen students, but also taking into account changes in the curriculum with the introduction of the new department. Based on these findings, we make recommendations for developing a more viable program.
