      In fact, many international students spend a lot of time in cultural adaptation due to a lack of sufficient psychological preparation in unfamiliar environments abroad, which not only affects their studies but also causes unnecessary waste. So when you study abroad, “everything is ready”
      Under the circumstances, it may take a little more time to prepare psychologically. It is recommended that every international student who is about to go abroad should fully inquire about the target country’s information, understand the local customs and cultural environment there, and receive certain cross-cultural exchange training. These are the methods.

      First of all, cultural differences are natural phenomena. We should learn to let go of our “cultural tinted glasses”. It is suggested that those who are about to cross the border should contact foreigners in China as much as possible, and ask them to introduce their cross-cultural experience in China and their living habits abroad.

      Indeed, living abroad will be different from some people’s living habits, because everyone grew up in different cultural environments and received different education since childhood, so they will also form different living habits. Accepting different living habits is an act of jumping out of comfort zone, but it also improves creativity and brain power. As for how to solve this problem, the first method can choose to have in-depth communication with each other and solve it from the perspective of culture. The second method is to learn to work with people from different cultural backgrounds. And the third method can be to forget this situation first, explore the difference of this living habit with curiosity, and try to learn it.

      There is a saying that goes like most of the international students are good at cooking. Especially for Chinese students, when they study abroad, they may miss Chinese food, but the one they eat in the Chineses restaurants might be really strange for them. So they start to learn cooking.
      What I want to suggest here is that you have to adapt to that kind of life that you are not familiar with, it truly takes time, but as you stay there for a longer time, you have more communications with local people (maybe you can meet someone who is really friendly) and you can get more close to this culture. When you come to somewhere, you need to follow the rules there.

      我认为中国学生到国外留学遇到困难大多来自于两方面:孤独和饮食不适应。中国学生可以通过多参加活动多认识朋友以及多和父母们交流来减少孤独感,或者适应孤独享受孤独。在饮食方面,我认为在出去留学前可以学习一些烹饪的技能,然后像一些综合性大学边上多多少少都会有一些中餐馆来满足中国学生的需求。
      I think most of the difficulties Chinese students encounter when they study abroad come from two aspects: loneliness and food maladjustment. Chinese students can reduce loneliness by participating in more activities, meeting more friends and communicating more with their parents, or by adapting to and enjoying loneliness. In terms of food, I think you can learn some cooking skills before you go to study abroad, and then there are more or less Chinese restaurants around some comprehensive universities to meet the needs of Chinese students.

      It is normal to feel a little out of it when you first move to a foreign country. Do not worry too much about having trouble adapting to a new environment. Do not fear making changes. Being more open-minded can help you better accept and fit in the new environment. Making new friends and trying to enjoy your life can help you better adapt to your new life.
      初到异国他乡,感觉有点不适应是正常的。不要过于担心难以适应新环境。不要害怕做出改变。更开放的心态可以帮助你更好地接受和适应新环境。结交新朋友,努力享受生活,可以帮助你更好地适应新生活。

      I think the best way to deal with this difference is to make friends with local students. They will teach you how to live and entertain like a local, take you to leisure parks or entertainment venues, and bring you to make more local friends blend into the new environment perfectly. Before that, what you need to do is maintain your charm, politeness, and sense of humor, join clubs and student associations, and let more people know you.
      我觉得应对这种差异最好的方法是与当地的学生交朋友。他们会教你如何像本地一样生活娱乐,带你去休闲公园或者娱乐场所,带你结交更多的本地朋友,从而完美地融入新的环境。而在这之前,你需要做的是保持自己的魅力,礼貌和幽默感,加入俱乐部和学生社团,让更多的人了解你。

      There shouldn’t be any major problems with living habits. You can still keep your old habits, maybe a little different in terms of diet, but you can also cook for yourself, I did more cooking for myself when I was abroad.

      Considering my traveling experience, I personally think adapting to different eating habits is a really important aspect. Not eating well could cause many health problems, which can affect our study and life. To get accustomed to the food in that country, try something new everyday. Also, you can cook by yourself if you really cannot adapt to the local food or you want to have something different from time to time. As far as I know, cooking by yourself can also reduce expenditure. Try to have a balanced and healthy diet!

      想起我以前旅行的经历,我个人觉得适应饮食习惯是很重要的一个方面。一直吃不好的话可能会造成很多健康问题,会影响到我们学习和生活。为了习惯当地的饮食,每天试着尝试一点新的食物。还有,如果真的没法适应当地食物或者有时向吃点别的,可以自己做饭。据我所知,自己做饭还可以减少开销。尽量吃的健康,营养均衡!

      Different cultural environments will have different living habits and eating habits. When I was a volunteer in Romania, I really missed Chinese food. In Romania, the food is typical western food. Fast food and unpalatable local food really made me miss the delicious Chinese food every day. My friends and I chose to cook by ourselves or went to eat Chinese food although it was not very authentic, then we persisted. When you encounter differences, don’t treat them negatively. Learn to be brave and actively face and solve them. If you don’t solve this problem, your study abroad life will become more difficult.

      不同的文化环境,就会有不同的生活习惯和饮食习惯。我在罗马尼亚做志愿者的时候,真的很想念中餐。在罗马尼亚,就是典型的西方食物,快餐加上当地不合口味的食物真的让我每天都怀念美味的中餐。我和我的朋友们当时就自己做饭或者去吃不是很地道的中餐,就这样坚持了下来。当遇到差异的时候,千万不要消极地去对待,自己要学勇敢积极地面对和解决,如果你不解决这个问题,那么你的留学生活也就会越加难熬。

      I think the key is to forget your home for a while and get ready to explore the fascinating part of the foreign country. Keep your curiosity about foreign culture and try to avoid breaking unspoken rules, like religion, don’t afraid of making mistakes, and encourage yourself to try new things. Of cause it takes time to adapt to the new life and studying styles, you need to be patient and don’t always complain about things you don’t get to use with. Think about the positive side of a new lifestyle and try to find the balance point between your life habits and foreign living habits. 我认为关键是暂时忘记你的家,准备好去探索这个国家迷人的部分。保持你对外国文化的好奇心,尽量避免打破潜规则,比如宗教,不要害怕犯错,鼓励自己尝试新事物。当然,适应新的生活和学习方式需要时间,你需要有耐心,不要总是抱怨你没有习惯的东西。想想新生活方式的积极面,试着在你的生活习惯和外国生活习惯之间找到平衡点。Here is a link to tips how to overcome fears about studying aboard这里有一个如何克服出国留学恐惧的小贴士链接: https://www.instarem.com/blog/studying-abroad-7-biggest-fears-and-how-to-overcome-them/

      As we have learned in class, cultural differences are a natural phenomenon. We generally go through three processes, the honeymoon period, the anxiety period, and the adjustment period. Cultural bias is formed as a result of asymmetric information flow. If a person does not experience a foreign culture firsthand, he or she can only form his or her own opinion of that culture through the experiences of others or the propaganda of the mass media. However, people can change. As long as we communicate well and adopt the right strategies and means, we can change the perceptions of those around us and improve our own living environment.

      There are two major misconceptions about cross-cultural communication that are most important to avoid. One is xenophobia and the other is pandering to foreigners. Both are manifestations of extreme cultural prejudice. In intercultural communication, we should temporarily put aside our own standards to understand others. But it is not the same as giving up our own cultural values and westernizing them all. In fact, differences are not a bad thing. Experience tells us that differences often attract the attention and curiosity of others. If we can turn differences into a motivation to communicate and use curiosity to enhance communication, then we can make a lot of friends. But we also need to learn to protect ourselves. Here’s a website on how to communicate across cultures.

      I have a good way is to get rid of the shackles of mobile phones and jump out of my comfort zone. More into the local living environment, walk the streets and feel the local customs.

      The other is about the differences in diet, which is difficult for picky people to overcome. They may have to have superb cooking skills to satisfy their stomach. If you study abroad for a long time, you can try to match Chinese and foreign food, and gradually you will get used to it.

      我有一个很好的方式是摆脱手机的束缚,跳出自己的舒适圈。多融入当地的生活环境中,走走大街小巷并且感受当地的风土人情。
      另一个是关于饮食方面的差异,饮食对于挑剔的人来说是比较难克服的,可能要具备精湛的厨艺等技能来满足自己的胃。如果长时间在国外留学,可以尝试中外饮食搭配,慢慢自己也会适应的。

      针对不同方面的生活习惯需要用不同的措施。在时间方面,比如用餐的时间,起床(工作、学习)的时间,休息的时间,你需要强迫自己适应,良好的生物钟会给你的学习生活带来充沛的精力以及明朗的心情。而在饮食方面,如果实在难以适应当地的日常饮食,你可以在工作日以健康的快速食品(如快速米饭,沙拉,三明治等)作为食物,而在休息日你可以挑选一餐去当地好一些的餐馆好好享受一下,作为对自已一周辛苦的犒劳以及对下一周的展望。

      Different measures are needed for various aspects of living habits. In terms of time, such as the time to eat, the time to get up (work, study), the time to rest, you need to force yourself to adapt; an excellent biological clock will bring your study life full of energy and bright mood. In dietary respect, if it is difficult to adjust to the local diet, you can on weekdays to healthy fast food (such as rapid rice, salad, sandwiches, etc.) as food. On the day of rest, you can choose a meal to enjoy a better local restaurant, as in a week’s hard work reward, and on the outlook for the next week.

      Cultural differences will be a huge problem when we are studying abroad. I think the most important thing is being tolerant. Don’t be self-centered like people around you should convert to your way. This is impossible. As a result, we should try to accept and accommodate foreign lifestyles and habits. Besides, do not be afraid to make mistakes, be active to ask questions to others, and accept the mistakes pointed out and suggestions given by others with an open mind.

      I think the main reason for discomfort is loneliness, cultural difference and dietary difference.In order to overcome discomfort, we should actively participate in activities and make friends with others so that we will not feel lonely. At the same time, when we feel lonely, we can contact our friends and family and talk to them.For cultural differences, I think we should hold inclusive and open attitudes and be good at discovering other cultural advantages. For dietary differences, we can use our spare time to study cooking and make some of our favorite meals, which will not only reduce the discomfort, but also make our mood more relaxed during the cooking process.

      我认为不适应的主要原因是因为孤独感以及文化差异还有饮食差异。为了克服不适应,首先我们应当积极参加活动并且多和别人交朋友,这样就不会感到孤独,同时,当我们感到孤独的时候,可以与朋友和家人联系,向他们倾诉. 对于文化差异,我认为我们应该保持包容和开放的态度,善于发现其他文化优点,很有可能我们会喜欢上他们的文化,这样会大大降低我们的不适。对于饮食差异,我们可以利用课余时间来学习做饭,做一些自己喜欢的饭菜,这样不仅可以减少不适应,做饭的过程中还会使我们的心情更放松

      It is really common for us to find that the living habits abroad are really different from what we have get used to. However, we need to learn to be accustomed to some new living habits if we want to fit in the new environment. First of all, I think we can try to make friends with some local people and let them show us how their special living habits look like. Though it is difficult to get used to immediately at first, we will feel better because people around us all act in this way. In addition, I believe that there are also some aspects that are really difficult for us to be used to. For example, we may not be able to accept the eating habits of local people, then we can find other ways to solve this problem, like cooking by ourselves or finding Chinese restaurants.

      我们发现国外的生活习惯与我们所习惯的完全不同,这是很常见的。然而,如果我们想要适应新的环境,我们可能需要学着去适应一些新的生活习惯。首先,我认为我们可以试着和当地人交朋友,让他们向我们介绍他们特殊的生活习惯。虽然很难马上适应一种新的生活方式,但我们之后会逐渐适应,因为我们周围的人都有这样的习惯。此外,我认为还有一些方面确实是我们难以适应的。例如,我们可能不能接受当地人的一些饮食习惯,那么我们可以尝试用其他的方法来解决这个问题,比如自己做饭或找一些中式餐馆。

      首先,在出国之前,你真的很有必要去了解一下这个国家的出行方式,不然你会发现等你到了那边之后会寸步难行。在这之中,你最好了解一下最便利的交通方式和最便宜的交通方式,这可以帮助你省下很大一笔费用。其次食物可能也是另一大难以适应的东西,所以你可以自己带一些吃的过去,或者学习一些基础的烹饪技能来帮助你过度。
      First of all, before going abroad, it’s really necessary for you to know the way of travel in this country, otherwise you will find it difficult to move when you get there. Among them, you’d better learn about the most convenient transportation mode and the cheapest transportation mode, which can help you save a lot of money. Secondly, food may also be another difficult thing to adapt to, so you can bring your own food in the past, or learn some basic cooking skills to help you transition.
