Attending a University

Attending a college in a new country can bring with it new expectations, a different classroom environment, and new friends. However, I often see international students struggle with these new changes, and they often expect that things will be just like home. Listen to the video and share your comments/opinions on the topic. You can find more videos at:

  1. I've studied in a language school in the US, and it was a totally different experience. Making friends there was quite easy because people were very friendly and helpful, but everything seemed to be ruled by the clock. It was a bit hard to adapt to that new reality; hopefully, I managed to get into the swing of things shortly after the first week of the course. I didn't expect things to be just like home. I know that in each and every country in the world people have their own way of living . Anyways,when in Rome, do what Romans do. ;-)

  3. Attending University is a great feat in one`s life. However, making sure that what you study is what you really want to be is even a bigger issue, so that at the end of your major you feel happy of your accomplishment and satisfied to be where you want to be.

  4. I've already decide what exactly I would like to study in the university since I was 12! Science Computer is my love since there. I'm studying hard these days because my IELTs test is going to be on fifht of December next, and It will decide about my college. I'm very anxious!

    About do something into the local community is something that I would like to do as well, but here in London the people in general aren't so patient and friendly, and that scare me... what should I do?
