Mi experiencia estudiantil

johanna rodriguez

Reino Unido, Manchester

When I first arrive to England, I was a bit scared and excited as I did not know anyone in this country and everything was absolutely different. The buses have two floors, the taxis are black, the electric plug has three phases and none of my electronic devices were compatible in this country. I had to find an electric adaptor for every single thing that I had. It was very funny because I could not use anything until I found the adaptor one month later.

The unit system in England gave me some problems at the beginning as well, especially when I had to buy liquids in pints and to measure something in inches. It is hard to get used to a new country and your new home, but it becomes easy when you find friends that share your same interests and hobbies.

Something that I like about being outside of my country is that I have improved my time management skills and the confidence in myself. I miss my family, and the communication is not the same through a computer screen, but I try to keep them informed about my life and studies so the distance becomes less frustrating for us. Although sometimes is difficult, I think that this experience has helped me to grow as a person and to become an adult.
