The experience of studying abroad is an irreplaceable piece of memory and a precious asset of life. This is the first time for me to be in another country for such a long time. I learn to deal with all kinds of unexpected challenges on my own, such as settling down the application and visa, arranging accommodation, and socializing with people of different culture backgrounds. Those soft skills would be of great use in the future life. Being thoroughly exposed to the outer world makes one matured. Your worldview would be challenged. Going for the exchange semester is not only an opportunity to know about other cultures, but also helps to understand one's inner self. Those benefits are that I could never imagine before.
