Meet new friends as an exchange student
After a couple of weeks it is very common to get a culture shock. You might feel miss-suited in your new country and that you don’t belong there. It is usually just a period of your year you will feel like this and it is important that you still try to be friendly and happy anyway.
If you are open and friendly you will as an exchange student get many new friends. People are very interested in you and wants to now more about you. You should therefore not be afraid of talking to new people and ask them questions.
Don’t be scared of calling people if they want to hang out. It is just a way to make them feel interested as well and almost every time they will help you get into the friendship-gangs.
