International Student Challenges

Obstacles For International Students:

  • Proper English is mandatory
  • Secondary language proficiency exams given by universities often fall short of professor expectations for their writing assignments
  • Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and other Asian speakers are used to conveying messages with short, direct logo-grams, but English is a more complex array of nouns and verbs
  • Hans and other Asian language characters can often only be loosely translated into English
  • Arabic, Hebrew and others are written from right to left
  • Arabic speakers often face the same challenges as Asian rooted tongues attempting translation
  • International students are adjusting to the routines of a new culture while pursuing academic endeavors
