    norms to avoid difficult and or dangerous situations While all norms of the Honor Code are crucial to student success and thus expected to be followed a few norms are worth highlighting as essential the Language Commitment the prohibition of alcoholic beverages drugs and tobacco the pledge to adhere to host family norms and the IUHPFL Pledge of Excellence Language Commitment The Language Commitment is the heart and soul of the Honor Code and one of the three pillars of the IUHPFL It is the driving force behind the entire program it is why students live with host families and not in dormitories it is why student attend academic classes while in the host country Without the Language Commitment there is no Honors Program Students pledge to follow the Language Commitment to maximize language learning and allow true immersion Thus students speak the foreign language at all times with limited communication with family and friends in the US and other countries Though it is challenging for students to learn to express themselves in a language not native to them and also to temporarily disconnect with family and friends for the summer the dedication to do so pays off in the long run Strategies for maintaining the Language Commitment are discussed at the IUHPFL orientation in the spring Students traveling to China pledge a modified language commitment a necessity to enable communication and ultimately support language immersion learning Alcoholic Beverages Drugs and Tobacco Though many foreign cultures permit their young people to drink and or smoke all IUHPFL participants are prohibited from consuming any type of drug or alcoholic beverage Host Family Norms As one of the pillars the host family experience is integral to the success of the IUHPFL participant The host family experience can be extremely rewarding many IUHPFL alum think of their host families in Chile China France Germany Mexico and Spain as second families returning for visits to them on occasion and maintaining communication with them indefinitely Such a close relationship with one s host family is not automatic however it takes effort hard work and ongoing willingness to communicate on the side of the student and the host family Pledge of Excellence This pledge encompasses all IUHPFL norms In making the Pledge of Excellence IUHPFL students not only agree to abide by the norms of the program they agree to do so in a spirit of team cooperation and with a positive attitude Why the Honor Code When going abroad IUHPFL students become immersed in a new language and a new culture that in and of itself is quite a challenge Other factors including alcohol independent traveling staying out too late in unfamiliar places can potentially be a recipe for disaster The trip abroad should be as smooth as possible but that doesn t happen naturally it takes hard work on the student s behalf as well as on behalf of instructors host families and the IUHPFL office And it takes a lot of training and
