laptop with study abroad on screen

What should you do to prepare before you study abroad?

On the 18th episode of Your Question, we handle the following question:

Q: How can I prepare for my study abroad?

Here are my thoughts and suggestions:

Instead of focusing on English, focus more on culture and daily life experiences. Learn about customs and the school or program you will be attending. Learn about your local area and try to talk to people from that area before you go. Once you are there, your English will improve very quickly! Don’t worry! Your English is good enough!
