From 4: 00 to 5: 00 on March 3rd, 2022, I attended an informational onlinemeeting named First Steps Workshop in zoom. The meeting was hosted by an IllinoisAbroad Ambassadors whose name was Catherine Webber. The topic of thisconference is to introduce the problems encountered in studying abroad and thesolutions. This activity introduces in detail the problems and solutions that students whostudy abroad will encounter. For example, when the speaker takes himself as anexample, a big problem is the language barrier.

You came to a completely strange country alone, andeverything is unknown, which will inevitably have a great impact on your mind;Confusion and panic are normal. You should make new friends as soon as possible!And bravely accept new things, be confident, and make yourself an optimistic,cheerful and easy-going person.Of course, after introducing these problems and some solutions, the presenteralso provided a website called Illinoisabord, a well-used public resource, whichprovided a platform for UIUC students to exchange their difficulties in studyingabroad, and if there are any convenient resources, they can also be shared with otherstudents on this website.
