Hello lotters! I'm a foreign student in my university. I exeprience some great things and learn a lot for being a foreigner here. At the first time I came here, I do not know how to speak English , owh God, it was a difficult time for me. But then, I tried to speak with some student which also foreigner, I forgor about all grammars that I have learn inmy country. I just try to speak up what in my mind. Luckily, now I can speak English, not a perfect English but I can tell what in my mind to them. The other thing that I experience as a foreigner student is, to addapt with some local foods which is very tasty. Time to time, I try some local foods and now, I like to eat some of them. I think, now I enjoy to eat some local food here. Are you foreigner student? What is unforgettable experience that you face as a foreigner?

So, are you adapted to the environment so far now? Welcome to the USA, you are more than welcome to try on some local staples. I went to Mexico before, and I didn't adapt to the local culture with my first arrival. I learn to speak Spanish, which is far difficult than English. I had cultural shock. Most importantly, I had to try their local spicy food.

I think so, Malaysia is not so much different compare to my country but yes I must adapt with some languages in my International Univerisity, in which I can meet some foreigner student especially from Midle East, Africa, and Asia. Thank for your respond!
