As an international student, it is relatively hard to learn and understand local culture as well as the knowledge we need to know in school. But thanks to our school’s International House program I have the privilege to live in a local household where we can practice communicating in English and learn about the local culture while having a great time with other international students who also enrolled in this program. Let me explain some of the advantages of being a student who lives in the International House. First, it is really convenient to live in a place that is only 2 minutes away from school, I can wake up at 8 a.m. every day and still be on time. Second, it is, overall, a great experience to live with a friendly local family and get to learn their traditions and manners. I’ve found myself learning a lot in the past year in the International House and I am looking forward to living here for the rest of my high school career.
