International students studying abroad is bound to be one of the best times in their life. So Students should not mess it up. As its an unfortunate reality that students might do the occasional dopey thing while studying in a foreign country. Although, it's best to begin the semester with a clear understanding of what everyday activities, students have control over that can enrich or detract from their semester in a foreign country. Thus, while it's fun to plan every weekend and dream of how study abroad should be before going but students might find that when they get over there, it can sometimes be difficult to follow even one’s own rules and regulations. So With a little help from Matador Network's collection of famous travel quotes, the following is a list of those everyday things students may need reminders of now and again while studying in a foreign country. As no one wants to come home wishing they had spent their entire semester differently. Thus, the advice to avoid common mistakes while studying abroad are as follows-


  • Students Know Nothing About the Host Country-

As the cool thing about being famous is travelling. Some people have always wanted to travel across seas, like to Canada and stuff etc. So For goodness sake, if students are committed to studying abroad, study before they come to a foreign land. As many Americans have a reputation for being ignorant of the world. So students should Break that stereotype early by learning about where they will be living, the geography and the people. Also, Know the surrounding countries, know their ways of life and know what language they speak and explore their culture.


  • Students who Use Only English-

If students do not think they can appreciate different language or culture then they are not learning. Though students don’t have to be perfectly fluent but try to say hello in their language and listen to those that have different beliefs and cultures. Thus, Practice every chance students get so even if they speak back in English, still, Language ties people together. So students should learn as many as they can 


  • Students who Hang in their Comfort Zone-

 Commonly along the lines of understanding, students should also try to be a chameleon. Additionally, At least taste the food or buy funny looking shoes and see how it feels. So No, it may not be “right” for many students, but it will bring them farther out of their comfort zone and farther into theirs, and ultimately make their understanding of their host culture more robust and clear.


  • Exciting Travels-

No matter how many times students go over that impeccable timetable or made sure one has set their alarm on AM not PM still the travel plans will go wrong. So, accepting it is the first step. Also, Bouncing back is the next. So If students miss their flight, book another one and talk to someone next to them, the memory stuck in the airport may be more influential than the trip itself at many times.


  • Students who Carry Old Baggage-

For students, whether it is in a hostel, with their new study abroad crew or on a Bus2alps trip students signed up for solo etc, still going abroad is the chance to be who a person truly is. They do not know students past or their dreams. So they only know what students give them and Don’t fake it. This is possibly the only time in a person’s life where they can be themselves.


  • Overdoses on Technology-

Students should Disconnect and do not get that overseas plan and also Don’t rush out to find Wi-Fi. Besides, Documenting these experiences to share is wonderful, but there is a time and place. Also, See the world through one’s eyes, not a screen and try to go eat something wonderful or do something amazing or see something incredibly beautiful and just appreciate it without posting it and just experiencing it.


  • Students who Hate their country-

Students should always be proud of where they are from and never be embarrassed for the stereotypes that may be thrown at them. Though Instead, teach and prove them wrong. Consider your country is a great country that has a lot to offer those that both live there and travel there as a destination. And no matter what, you are representing your country and yourself, when you travel. Thus, give it a good name and make people want to visit your country.


  • Students should forget the Journal-

All traveller should have a journal and not a blog, but a journal to write down all stuff, with a pen on paper, their experiences. Also, chronicling students own thoughts as they immerse themselves in another culture is the -real them as a person. This is their stripped-bare self, and will probably turn into their greatest souvenir from the trips.


  • Students who only Travels in Groups-

Though for students, it is wonderful travelling with others, especially people one actually care about. Still, it is extremely important to at least step off to the side for a second and think and travel by themselves. Also, students should realize how amazing it is for them to be in the place they are. So students should take in the sounds, the scenery, and make sure they are not taking this travel experience for granted. They should Breathe in, breathe out and be thankful that they are alive and that they are travelling actually.


  • Lets Fear Reign-

Students should not miss out on opportunities because of fear or homesickness. They should do everything they can in the amount of time they are abroad. Also, Conquer phobias, chance on making new relationships and stick their neck out wherever possible and should not hold back. Besides, there they have it, from one former study abroad student to a future study abroad.

Therefore, students should consider these ten common mistakes while studying abroad and also aim to eliminate these rotten habits. Also,  they should learn from this list and write it all down. While making sure they live their semester studying abroad with no regrets at all.
