I came up with the following "theory on student comparability with a host family while studying abroad" and posted it to my Scribd page a few years ago. It should be noted that this theory is really in it's infancy stage [a sketch really] and I've not done further testing/research on it. Perhaps after my dissertation I'll dig it up and mess with it but for now it is just out there for critique. What are your thoughts?
