yes fortunately i got a chance to study abroad. I studied in the USA and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.It passed like a dream. Believe me it is priceless experience. I wish i chose to live with a host family i guess I would be closer to american culture. I lived in the USA for 6 years and it has become an integral part from my life.
If you get an opportunity to study overseas, i would share something with you:
Give yourself a time to learn about the culture and people.
Surround yourself with the environment where you can practice English language. Unless you break the language barrier, you may not feel any progress in your studies.
You can cope with negative feelings and homesickness will fade away it is just a matter of time.
Most importantly, avoid pessimistic people. they won't do you good.
stay hard and hope to achieve your goals :)
Think you have an opportunity is a dream of many people.

Hi. I'm very interested about what you are sharing. And I would like to ask you some questions: did you live with your fellow friends in dormitorty? and how was it?
Thank you!

Hi there,One thing that I want to mention is that the most effective way of learning English is not studying only grammar,lexicology, etc., one must know also the people who's native language is English and also their culture. So, I really want to study English in the Uk, but..

I would like to learn English in Uk.

Hello xuseen cali,

I'd recommend the British Council's ESOL Nexus as a good place to start learning about living and studying in the UK. 

All the best,

Hi everyone, I am a new comer here, I like this website very much! This is the most useful and interesting way I've ever seen to learn English, thank you LearnEnglish team!!

I've never studied abroad yet, to me it is just a dream which cannot come true. But I met a lot of foreign students come to China, I can feel they all enjoy a vivid life to study abroad. Extracurricular time they often travel around in different place, having fun and interesting life.

Actually. I have never studyied at a university in other different countries. But I alway hope that I will study abroad in Australia when I get an Academic IELTS and get a target that I want to.
Sometimes. I imagine my life when I arrive in there. There are have lots of new thing. I have to start a new life, make new friends who come from different country, and the worthest is to start a new studying measures. which is not like that in Vietnam. Anyway, I should try to. Fortunately. My cousins are living there, so I am going to live with them at their house, but there are far from my school. however, I can save money if I live with them,
There are have several reasonthat I choose study in Austria. Firstly, the politics there are good about human right, studying andthe rate of happiness. I think the price of life there is not too expensive. and secondly, I have my related who are living there and I will not be shock culture when to live in a different country.
However. I am quiet excitied when I think about that. this is a new experience in my life

Studying abroad is my dream and I am trying to make it come true. I am leaning IELTS, and after graduating, I will apply a scholarship to go to abroad. I really believe that I can do it. I love to experience life in other countries, make new friends and travel around the world. UK and US are two places that I want to experience life the most.

I haven't ever study abroad .. I am a family person so that may explain why , also the universities in my country are very good in many aspects ..

to avoid culture shock I think who wanna study abroad should read about the country and since we're living in the internet world it has been much easier to make friendship with ppl across the world so he should take advantage of that and try to keep in touch with people living in that country so he will get comfortable and more confident when he arrives that country
