    Hi guys,

    Having just arrived at Warwick I've just been confronted by my worst nightmare. I've been put in a small flat of five, consisting of me and four international students. ALL of them are Chinese girls who seem okay but just keep to themselves and speak their native language. I have tried tried tried all afternoon to make conversation with them but they just keep retreating into their own little clique.

    So, whilst trying to get an accommodation transfer, I'm just sitting here like a rock.

    Are there any other freshers' at Warwick in this situation? Plus would anyone like to meet up for a chat or go to the bar tonight? At least we could make the best of a bad situation lol...

    Im in Redfern by the way!

    No Its my second year in a row that I'm avoiding going to University! Im just not ready yet.

    You can try and convince you asian flatmates to go out and make some english speaking friends when you are out ? Tell them about your situation, it will help

    Well they're probably t-total and currently they're sitting in the kitchen eating noodles. Besides, they'll just talk in Cantonese/Mandarin the whole evening and continue to exclude me from convos.

    Why would the uni put one guy in with 4 Chinese girls in one flat lol. At least make it even maybe 2 girls 3 guys or vice versa. I also think it's quite rude of them excluding you from conversations and only speaking mandarin around the flat, I would be very para as they could be talking about you lol.

    I lived with Chinese students for both 2nd and 3rd year. They were actually really friendly once I started trying to talk to them. As the terms progressed they taught me some Mandarin and some incredibly tasty recipes. And I showed them some cooking from my heritage. I still talk to them on facebook all these years later.

    I'd advise cornering one in the kitchen and just be friendly to them.
