This chapter reports the reflections of two Australian teacher educators, captured through their planning emails, as they accompanied a group of Australian pre-service teachers on a short-term international experience (STIE) in China in June 2014. The ten pre-service teachers would, among other things, encounter culturally embedded (many of them ‘linguistic’) differences as they ‘got to know’ and ‘made sense of’ China. The two teacher educators capture their own conceptualisation of pre-service teachers’ processes of learning-to-know for framing of such student mobility programs in the future.
