Oh yeah there are definitely some friendly people, as I said 2 from Hong Kong have made friends with me, and I only really have about 10 friends so that's quite a high proportion! It's just there are a lot of people from Hong Kong on my course and it's difficult to try to join in with them when they're together. (Individually everyone is kind and polite but as a group they seem to prefer each other.)(Original post by hydroxide)
Hey there, I'm from HK and I'm currently at a school that has both day and boarding pupils, and my closest friends are actually Brits rather than HK/Chinese people!! I think it really depends on the people you meet, I personally wanted to make friends with non-Chinese people to get to know more about British culture haha.
I might be different coz my English is fluent as i've grown up in an English-speaking school, but maybe someday you will find some nice Chinese friends who will speak to you in English and not just ignore you?
(I honestly get somewhat annoyed when Chinese people here speak Chinese at school, they should be here to practise English )
I completely understand the language thing, my lab partner is also Chinese and he says very little to me and we sometimes misunderstand each other but get along fine!
Does anyone use their degree?
