The NY Times article, “Chinese, Studying in America, and Struggling,” was shared by INTO OSU’s┬áChinese Language & Culture Advisor, Alice Wang. Below you’ll find her comments about the article. As much of our student population is from China, this cultural perspective is vitally important for teachers to consider. Here are Alice’s comments:

While some international students are struggling at American universities, instructors are being challenged to teach and help them. To achieve success, students must do their part, and equally important, instructors and professors need to understand the difficulties their students face in order to adjust their teaching to encourage and offer support to international students.
