When you cast back on your first year abroad, what was the top demanding situation that you struggled the most with? Were you aware of it before you went abroad? Is there anything you would like to change if you are in that situation again? : )

Congratulations, everyone!
It's been a month since we started the community. We've since welcomed 20 members and hosted 1 live Google Hangout session. To encourage more participation and invite more members, please post your ideas about how to make the community better or anything that you want to discuss both through posts and in our next Hangout session. If you know any American's interested in China and education or any Chinese students coming to/studying in the US, please invite them to join as well! 
Your feedback would be much appreciated! Together we can make this a dynamite space! ^_^

"Are Chinese people less 'shy' when they go to KTV? "
Personally, while my American friends view KTV more like going out - they like to dance, have fun and don't care much about how well they could sing, Chinese people often enjoy singing more, the music, lyrics, music video of a tragic love story (just kidding) XD.
What do you think? What are some of the differences interesting things you've observed?

Hi All, couple of announcements for this week:

Chinese students buying luxury cars in US once they found out price is 2~3 times cheaper here than China. They've been boosting sales of car dealer near campus, who are sponsoring Chinese student organization to get more advertising. Calvin Yang, 24, senior at Oregon State University says, "I’ve seen some students—they’ve bought a car three days after they arrived in the U.S.” Among Chinese student car buyers in the U.S. in the past two years, 32 percent paid cash. You thoughts on this?
