    Hey everyone!

    I am a 3rd year entrant in Business student at University West of Scotland (All of the class is 3rd year entry). We have about 40 people in the class (lots of us i know! ), half are French students and half are Scottish.

    So far, the two groups of students have kept to themselves with only a couple mixing when group work is needed (Me included). I would love for the French students to mix with us so then they get a great experience while they are over here and hopefully to learn each others cultures!

    Any ideas on how to get people involved?? D: or will it just be a lost cause? lol

    Thanks!

    I love how inclusive you are being. That's a great trait

    You could privately ask your tutor/lecturer if you could do more mixed group work and continue to make an effort to socialise with them.

    Have you tried learning any french? If a few of you are interested you could all download an app and practice together. That might help if there is any language barrier - and might help them to feel a bit more at home as you're all making the effort.

    Failing that, are any societies any of them attend? You could try joining too and mix outside of your course.

    Why do they have to be friends? What's wrong with not wanting to talk to those French students? Name:  untitled.png
