Inspired by a question on our Facebook page, and Tara’s recent post with tips for writing papers and giving oral exams, this week’s question is about studying in English when it’s not your native language.
How hard (or not) is it to keep up academically with American classmates? What’s the most difficult part about studying in a non-native language? If you’re currently in the US, did you find that you knew English well enough when you arrived to keep up? If you’re thinking about studying here, do you think you speak well enough to get by?
