Next year, nearly 400,000 graduating high school students in China will be going to America for college. Here are three requirements that everyone who wants to study in America must meet in order to be successful.
1. You must learn English.
This is quite important. If you're going to sit in a classroom and hear lectures in English, you must know English very well. If you are going to live in an English-speaking country, you must know English in order to survive there.
2. You must have a qualified English teacher to teach you.
There are few English teachers in China that can teach you American or British English unless they have lived abroad in the US or the UK. So you have a choice. You'll have to find a native English-speaking teacher.
3. Get started early.
I've seen a lot of students try to get ready during their last two to three years of high school. It is really too late to start then. If you are lucky enough to have a child that is still in primary school, then, do all you can to prepare for your child now. Make your child focus on math and English. I should also say they should focus on Chinese language as well. Start early, and you'll see amazing rewards later.
