Share Experience, Story here about Study in China or life in China --- by Foreign Student
I chose to study abroad in China because I knew I would be exposed to new knowledge and skills and improved life experience that I can’t gain while studying in my home country. Despite all of these, during the time I decided to study in China, my first worry was about the way of life in China, I was thinking that is completely different from back home life, and that I will have hard time to adapt new study life in China.
Prior to think China is a traditional, lots of old and traditional buildings, after arrived in China, I found that studying in China is one of the best decisions I have ever made for my studies. China is very modern, everywhere are tall buildings, the traffic system is very developed, here development is very fast, very international, many foreigners, a lot of Chinese people can speak English, especially students. A lot of delicious food, cheap and delicious.
Why other international students like me need to chose China for their studies, simply because China is one of the early civilizations with a rich history and culture, and also because it is fast growing to becoming an economic powerhouse in the world. I believe that China is a land of opportunity and I thought studying in China would give me the chance to learn more about the country. My dream of studying abroad in China became a reality.
Many international students believe that studying and living in China is an expensive venture, this is not true, I personally realized that China is a country with low tuition fee and living expenses compared to the most western countries, in addition there are also numerous scholarships available to international students.
My today’s life in China is not so much different from my home country. The lifestyle in big and small cities in China has been strongly influenced by western culture. International student like me can easily find western fast food restaurants, supermarkets, and Chinese restaurants with delicious and cheapest food all around the university. Embrace new people and culture around me, brought me some challenge, however, I tried to be flexible and enjoy the unexpected. Sample the food, try to learn and speak simple Chinese language, having Chinese friends make my life in China full of happy memories.
Regarding my studies, since I have been in China, I realized that China is the home of excellent universities, beautiful natural sights, and great entertainment for inbound students. Students who like sports as I do will enjoy study life in China, as the Chinese love soccer, badminton, ping pong, martial arts and basketball. As international students in China, I am truly gaining an extraordinary educational experience and have the opportunity to take in life in a foreign nation. Studying in China give me great opportunity that other international students should seriously consider the prospect.
