have you ever met students from south africa? what was your first impression of them and do you think that their education compares with international standards?

I've known a couple South African exchange students and I was pretty good friends with a couple of them. They come off as quite cranky at first, that might have just been the group I met. They are nice once you get past that and very fast learners. They did have some struggles with the dialect and I would say they are middle of the road as far as their education standards. Egyptian and Indian students are by far the most intelligent exchange students I have met.
