If we all share our experiences with each other about how you found a school abroad, how you funded your studies, problems you are having, etc… we can all learn about how things are done and make things easier for all!

Study in the USA Blog
Study Abroad Blog

International Calling Card Blog

and of course this blog!

We like using blogs because they provide fresh content on a number of topics, plus it allows you to comment on them. So if you see something that you like, post a comment. If you see something you don’t like or don’t agree with, post a comment. Or if you can add something to the post such as more information or your own experience then post a comment!

Its easy to do and will help us all!

    Firstly please allow me to apologise for being off topic, but I have a problem I hope you can help me with. I am preparing a Chinese language course, with the view of teaching people Mandarin and the Romanisation of the Mandarin language, Pinyin. The problem I have is that I would really like to give the people studying a real feel for the Chinese culture but without taking up too much of their time. Would you have any suggestions how this may be achieved? I’d like to thank you in advance for any light you may be able to shed on this.

    Be Conscious of Your Language Choices: Avoid slang, because it is culturally-specific and therefore not shared across different cultures around the world. Therefore, what you think is a casual term might cause someone from another culture great confusion or even embarrassment. An additional factor here is that online international students generally learn formal English and are not familiar with more casual terminology.
