It was the first time I applied for an overseas University, so I barely had any experience.

With a specialized teacher keeping contact with me all the way from application to arrival, I got a lot ofhelp and things got done smoothly. It was the enthusiasm and sincerity ofteachers in Shanghai University that firmed my determination of choosing it, aswell as strengthening my confidence of living independently in China.

That was the first time I went abroad to entirely new environment. I could still feelthe worry or even horror when I left home, as if it only happened yesterday.However, when I walked out of the airport and found the volunteer waiting topick me up, my fear disappeared. The volunteer then became my first friend inChina, who had not only brought me to the campus safely but also guided mearound to get familiar with the surrounding environment, and accompanied me onpurchasing my phone card and other necessities. Upon seeing the welcome slogansaround the reception desk and friendly smiles on the attendant's face when Ichecked into the dormitory with my luggage, I knew this place would be warm and welcoming.

Name: Victoria

From: Russia

Program: Chinese Language and Literature

Subject: How to get into the campus

Getting used to life here is easy. You can try to find your compatriots, but if youcan't, don't worry, go to the ISU (International Students Union) in the dormitory hall, and you will get help. But, I think the best way to get yourself inside is to find a Chinese peer. After that I believe you will soon have a group of Chinese friends. Of course, if you still have any problem, go tothe CIE office for help.

From: Turkey

Program: Chinese Language and Literature

Subject: How to deal with the difficulties during study

Forme, studying here was not an easy task, especially at the beginning. My compatriots couldn’t help me much on it because they were in different majors.So I turned to communicate with my Chinese classmates, and they were allunexpectedly quite willing to help. Every day after class, we would discuss and study together. Thanks to my Chinese classmates, I'm now able to accomplish mydissertation in Chinese independently. Those classmates and I are now close friends. I'm so delighted about the achievements I made here.

I hope I could return to Madagascar to land a job related to information management. On my graduation day 3 years later, I believe I will be capable to speak Chinese fluently, and know more about Chinese culture as well.
