Each year, 700,000 students from around the world come to the United States and Canada to study. For many, the experience is as challenging as it is e xciting. Far from home, they must adapt to a new culture, new university sy stem, and in many cases, a new language. The process can be overwhelming, b ut as Charles Lipson's Succeeding as an International Student in the United States and Canada assures us, it doesn't have to be. Succeeding is designed to help students navigate the myriad issues they wil l encounter--from picking a program to landing a campus job. Based on Lipso n's work with international students as well as extensive interviews with f aculty and advisers, Succeeding includes practical suggestions for learning English, participating in class, and meeting with instructors. In addition it explains the rules of academic honesty as they are understood in U.S. a nd Canadian universities. Life beyond the classroom is also covered, with handy sections on living on or off campus, obtaining a driver's license, setting up a bank account, an d more. The comprehensive glossary addresses both academic terms and phrase s heard while shopping or visiting a doctor. There is even a chapter on the academic calendar and holidays in the United States and Canada. Coming to a new country to study should be an exciting venture, not a baffling ordeal. Now, with this trustworthy resource, international students have all the practical information they need to succeed, in and out of the classroom.
