Hi, I am a Chinese student who is going to the UK for a master's study in 2021 fall. You know, it's my first time to study abroad, so I am so excited and I really want to make friends with new foreign classmates. So how can I make friends with foreign friends, any advice for me? Thanks!

Hi,
One of my closest friends is an international student from China, we just met on the class group chat and have been talking and we've gotten close that way.
I'd just say be friendly and open and meet lots of people, same as making friends anywhere.
Good luck!

Look out for a Chinese/Asian society at your university. Generally China is pretty well represented.

One helpful thing I sometimes use is an app called Slowly, which helps you to communicate and find people in other countries.

Unless you are a tall muscular chad, you won't find anyone. If you are a virgin normy or wimp who is short, non muscular and nerdy/wear glasses, good luck you won't be getting laid bruh.
ignore this beta male incel, you'll find plenty of friends!

Only chads and white normies/beta with money get girls.
I don't need to get girls, I just want to make friends. Stop being so mean to boys, most girls are not as fussy as you might think. Why do I know this? Because I am a girl

Some of the students here struggle a little with speaking english, best advice is to practise english speaking more (before you arrive) and then join all the sports/music clubs that interest you!
