    join some clubs, social activities, volunteer work, get a part-time job, move out of campus, share apartment with non-Chinese speakers, have fun. speak as much as you can. it only takes time. you will get there.

    I just want to say this ...

    If one wants to improve his game in tennis, he needs a good coach who knows how to correct mistakes, as well, continues to challenge other excellent players ... wasting time with someone who cannot coach or with terrible players, well, is just wasting time.

    You just need thick skin ...

    每个城市, 每个大学都有一个“国际俱乐部”。 这写学生都更快地宽容国际学生,对国际文化有兴趣。 我建议你去问问你的大学哪有这种活动。

    我也建议你去找一份工作, 特别是一个有空的时间多的,或者可以当志愿者,要是你不需要钱,而想认识很多有质量的人, volunteers一般很好很商量。
