The Grand-Place in Béthune, France. Walking around here was a bit like stepping back in time, because of the Flemish style buildings. The town was rebuilt after it was destroyed in WWI. In Fall 2016-Spring 2017, I worked here as a language assistant before returning to SFU to finish my French degree.

Here is what the students have captured...
Jokes, I don’t really know korean.
My korean friends teach me please🙏🏻😭
This building reminded me a lot of SFU.. the grey, the structure, and the number of people trying to find out where to go. @beedieabroad @sfu_coop-archive #beedieabroad #captureyourcommute
Meet Gustav. He’s South African, I met him during my orientation, and his favourite word is yea yea. He’s really cool, and not just because he has an iPhone X to take cool photos of me like the one you’re about to see soon but because he joins in on my “adventures.” Be like Gustav, I like Gustav.
California, United States
It has been a wild journey since the day I came over to the States for my first co-op. Really appreciate the chance that was given to me. It was a great adventure. I still remember the first day when I arrived, I was trying so hard to adapt to the new surrounding. It was tough and challenging. But I would like to thank my friends that have helped me along they way, and those who have brought me around @wengkeat575 @thejoshchin @halimpolar

A sign I often passed on my way to work in Bethune, France. It was a pleasant reminder of home which was definitely welcome whenever I was feeling homesick. In Fall 2016-Spring 2017, I worked here as a language assistant before returning to SFU to finish my French degree.
As much as I like the Meditereanean/Catalan cuisine, I crave Korean rice and spices. There was a restaurant that served good Asian food, thank goodness. The taste helped me make it through my 9 month internship because it reminded me of home. While walking to work, I would often consider going there for dinner 🍚 (Spain, Spring 2018 semester, FASS)

This was taken near a 7-11 before we had a “school dinner” and some 36 year old whose been here for like 400 years kept on talking and nobody was interested. When I said bye to him with a fist bump he grabbed it like an apple. I used hand sanitizer after that. @sfu_coop-archive@beedieabroad #captureyourcommute #beedieabroad
The beautiful Grand-Place in Bethune, France at night. To the left is a tall belfry tower that chimes every fifteen minutes or so. During the war, the belfry, or beffroi, was partially destroyed, but it’s since been reconstructed. In Fall 2016-Spring 2017, I worked here as a language assistant before returning to SFU to finish my French degree. #captureyourcommute #sfucoop-archive @sfu_coop-archive #photocontest#beffroi
I met two wonderful girls, that I now call my friends, during my internship. I was introduced to one of them through the school I worked at and the other by coincidence on the train. We've made some amazing memories together whether it was in the cafe, eating lunch/dinner, taking the kids to the park, going for a hike, or doing touristic things 💕🤗 (Spain, Spring 2018 semester, FASS)
Great place to run every morning before beginning work. Summer Co-op in Sigchos, Ecuador.
