If you attend any of these events, report back and let us know what you learned! (Use the comments, the Facebook page or just email me – jstahl@voanews.com). And please share any online events you’ve found that we haven’t.

    An interesting new international book/ebook that helps those coming to the US, including students, is “What Foreigners Need To Know About America From A To Z: How to understand crazy American culture, people, government, business, language and more.” It paints a revealing picture of America for those foreigners who will benefit from a better understanding. Endorsed worldwide by ambassadors, educators, and editors, it also identifies foreigners who became successful in the US and how they contributed to our society, some of whom were students. It has a chapter that explains how to be accepted to an American university and cope with a new culture, including friendship and classroom differences they will encounter. It elaborates on ways of getting financial assistance, even free colleges and universities. Half our foreign students stay here after graduation. It has four chapters that explain how US businesses operate, a must for those who will work for an American firm or with a foreign firm in the US environment. It also has chapters that identify the most common English grammar and speech problems foreigners have and tips for easily overcoming them, the number one problem they say that holds them back. Most struggle in their efforts and need guidance from concerned Americans, books like this, and Dreamers protection to extend a cultural helping hand so we all have a win-win situation. http://www.AmericaAtoZ­.com
