How to Survive ✌️ College 🏫 if You Are a ESL 💬 Student ...


The challenges of ESL (English as a second language) education are great and many, but if you take things seriously and focus on your development, you can expect amazing rewards and immense satisfaction. After all, there really aren’t that many students who decide to combine their college education with another language, so if you can accomplish a course as an ESL student, many extra opportunities will open up and you will have the self-confidence to succeed with whatever you decide to do with your life. Here are my tips on how to survive college if you are an ESL student.

1. Make Every Effort to Improve Your English

It is always a challenge to get to grips with a new language, and anyone who has learned English will tell you that it is not just difficult to learn, but even more difficult to master. Even native speakers are fooled at times by the complexities of the English language, and for students who do not speak English natively, there are many different challenges.

The only way to overcome these challenges and to excel in your study of English is to engage yourself, get involved and be diverse. This means making the most out of every education portal, every lecture and seminar, and your social calendar. You should actively test yourself on rules, punctuation and grammar usage, and don’t shy away from complex topics like sentence structure, clauses, prepositions and so on. You must always practice as much as you can with reading and writing, and good writing is always fundamental, but talking with others is just as good (and much more fun!). Never be afraid, and always snatch the opportunity to speak with others and get involved in class discussions.
