Personal comments:
Being study in alient, it is always necessary to learn local language and understand the local culture background. It would help you to melt into the local life and used to it. Before came to Holland, I could not speak Dutch, after several months living in Holland, I have communicated with Dutch poeple, speaking Dutch to them, gradually, I can speak more and more. Try to open your mouth and don't be shy is my way to learn and this method is really working!
