  2. I think it is a good idea to find good roommate to live with for following reasons.
    First, you will find some troubles in daily life since you are in foregin country so it will be great if you have a roommate to help each other when things happen.
    Second, you might get home sick. That is the time you probably really appreciate having a roommate.
    Third, you might feel insecure away from home so if you have a friend who can talk and help each other, you can focus on your school work and enjoy your life on overseas.

  3. Staying alone is a bad decision bcoz when you are staying in a foreign country, you have to adopt with the new culture and that really helps when the things getting tough. Finding a good & real understanding roommate to live and enjoy the life.

  4. well, i think living with a roommate is a good way for student who study abroad by some reason. when we live far from our home and our friends we need to share our feelings and a roommate is the good person in this case. And another advantage is that we can save money by sharing payment for rent.

  5. it's best to live with a roommate, you'll learn lot of things about her and she'll learn lot of things about you too.I feel boring when living alone and you might get home sick.But first you should choose a good roommate.

  8. The first thing I have to consider about is price.I am a student,so I can't afford to too much expensive one.Second,the power of cell phone is also important.For me cheap and powerful is awesome.

  9. It is a great idea to live with a roommate because it brings some advantages such as; to have a good friend to share all the things in common and to have somebody who to talk to but sometimes this idea is not good because of differences between people and it brings a lot of issues, so it would be better to think about it by asking for help to GOD!
