It is an often asked question about surviving in a country whose native language is not English. When we think of studying abroad, most of us imagine ourselves only in an English country like USA or UK. But these are not the only countries for higher education as Non-English countries like Germany and China have also proved themselves second to none. If you have an opportunity to study in a Non-English country, I suggest that you better avail it and not ignore it just because it is not English country.
Every year thousands of students even from USA and UK move to Non-English countries for higher education. Though they have everything available there, you don’t get to experience a new lifestyle with totally different language and culture. It would be like an adventure. In addition, these countries also have special perks and renowned in their own domains. Non-English countries, though provide global level of higher education, their education cost is way too low and in some countries even entirely free. I myself prefer Non-English countries over English countries for higher education. There are already many foreigners in countries like UK and Australia. Since we are going abroad why not make it interesting and for your information Non-English countries facilitation for international students is better than others. In order to promote the trend of Non-English countries for education, I will clear all the complexities you have in your mind about them. Following is the complete detail about these countries and how it is not much difficult to manage there.
There are English-Taught Programs:
All the good countries for higher education, whose native language is not English, have special English-Taught programs. English-Taught programs are the courses offered by a university that are taught in English. In these programs you will find many other foreigners like you as your class fellows and some of them might also be native that took admission to experience a new perspective.
So if you were worried that you don’t their language, you got nothing to worry about. However, English is a must thing. If you don’t know English then you can’t get education in any country other than your own. Every country offers a wide range of English taught programs specifically to attract international students and you can easily find the course of your choice to study there.
You will have many other International Students:
As English-Taught programs are specifically designed for international students, you will find many other foreigners there as your class fellows. It is in these classes that you can find the most diverse cultural environment. Many students even from developed countries like United Kingdom, United States of America, and Australia etc. go to Non-English countries for higher education.
All of these students can speak English. This way you will not only have the opportunity to create network from all around the world but you will make study groups with them. Studying such group might be little confusing in start because of different accents of English but as the time will pass, you will get used to it. This way you can experience all different cultures and concepts of world in one place.
Teachers are Professional:
Students worry that they might not be able to understand the lecture because of their different style and accents. If you don’t understand the lectures then your whole purpose of moving to new country goes in vain. But the teachers are teachers for some reasons. They are not only highly educated and have strong concepts but they have such strong communication skills that they keep the whole class with them. They know when to go slow, fast or stop so that all students are able to learn and no one gets confuse because of the language barrier.
Some good universities also hire foreigner professors to teach there. If you have any problem in studies you can simply share it with the teacher and he or she will facilitate you as it is a part of their job. Just make sure you have good English and keep a good relation with your class fellows because you will need each other’s help many times.
Most People can Speak English:
English is an international language and not limited to just one country or culture. If you know English, it is said that you can survive in any part of the world. Now if you are going to a developed country higher education, there will be a big proportion of education people. Even uneducated can now speak English as second language.
If you think that it will be difficult to manage social and personal life there, my friend I must say you are mistaken. Most people like to talk to foreigners and they will speak to you in English when you will need their assistance. Whether you go for sightseeing, shopping or jobs; you won’t come back disappointed. There will be people who can’t speak in English but it doesn’t mean that you can’t live there.
You will learn a New Language and Culture:
That is the part I am most excited about studying in a Non-English country. You know your native language and you have learnt English language. If you move to a country whose first language is not English, you will experience a whole new language style and culture there. By the time you will your education, you will also have learnt their language as most probably your third language.
If you will go out meet new people or go for shopping, you will gradually start to understand their words. Besides, you will see their traditions, customs, festivals and lifestyle which is the most fun part of studying abroad. If you want to understand a new culture you should taste it. You will get an experience that you don’t get by just taking a tour. You will definitely get education and the best of it but with that you will also learn many new things that will give much higher perspective of the world and life.
