What advice does Richard Muller have for an international student coming to study college in the … by Richard Muller
Answer by Richard Muller:
Make new friends among the Americans. Don’t hang out much with the students who came from your own country.
When my daughter went to Paris for a year as a student, she was determined that she would not hear or speak a word of English while she was there. It was tough, and it meant she had to stay away from other US students. But the results were spectacular. Two years later she applied to graduate school in Paris at l’École Supérieure de Commerce, and the interview was in French. She was told that she sounded like a native Parisian; she was accepted at full scholarship.
Integrate yourself to the US culture, for at least the time you are here.
