    So, next week, we are having 3 new ERASMUS students moving into our flat at uni and I am so nervous but excited to meet them! I don't know what to say to them, or how to introduce myself. Has anyone had any experiences like this?

    Just be natural and welcoming. Maybe bake them a cake or something else to make them feel like it is a new home. They will no doubt be nervous because they are moving into a brand new country.

    I second making food- nothing is better than food for starting a conversation! Maybe make something that is a local speciality or something very British?
    Just be very welcoming- ask questions about their home countries and tell them a bit about yourselves. Do you know anything about them already?
    Overall the prospect sounds very exciting- if you make good friends with them you can go and stay with them for holidays!

    I had two, both were quiet but pleasant. We just invited them along when we went out and stuff, they soon made their own friends and didn't really bother with us.
