Furthermore, one of the most jobs that pupils are faced is civilization daze. It is inevitable because of civilization daze is a common phenomenon for people who live in a different civilization ( Pedersen and Brzeska 2011 ) . Particularly, pupils of Liverpool international college ( LIC ) are widely from different states such as China, Vietnam, Oman and America, so it is indispensable to look into the challenges faced by LIC pupils analyzing abroad.

There were huge literatures which have mentioned the jobs faced by international pupils. At first, over 30years research ( Church 1982 ) asserted that international pupils ever face fifty anguage obstruction, fiscal barriers, accommodating a new civilization and new environment, and for portion of international pupils, favoritism. In add-on, harmonizing to Lin and Yi ( 1997 ) , with the development of globalisation, some issues confronted by international pupils have increased quickly: non merely linguistic communication obstruction, but besides academic jobs due to unequal linguistic communication accomplishment, fiscal force per unit area and interpersonal jobs. Similarly, Kuo ( 2011 ) indicated that for most international pupils, which possibly are the most intelligent pupils in their ain states and have their personal motive to analyze abroad( Constantinides, 1992 ) ,English is debatable. For illustration, for most pupils whose primary linguistic communication is non English, they were taught more about English reading and authorship, particularly for English grammar and vocabulary because of easy to look into, but for speech production, ever is their failing ( Wan 1998 ) . Therefore, the following jobs such as can non understand the whole talk, don non cognize how to take portion in treatment and take notes have appeared. Furthermore, Huntley ( 1993 ) illustrated these international pupils could besides hold barriers of understanding local speech pattern, slang, and parlances. As a effect, international pupils lose their assurance in colloquial English would go a common phenomenon ( Kuo 2011 ) . Furthermore, it is undeniable that fiscal concerns could besides go a portion of challenges of abroad pupils because some European states are non allowed some international pupils work outdoors such as the Unite Kingdom. So, some school’s occupations become a popular manner to alleviate this job and completing all classs every bit shortly as possible besides would be a good attack ( Lee et al. 2004 ) .
In the same manner, the above-named troubles and jobs, such as linguistic communication obstruction and feeling lonely, are the chief factors to lend civilization daze ( Saylag 2014 ) . For the most abroad pupils, civilization daze is a complete new thing. To cite from Ward et Al. ( 2001 ) , civilization daze can be regarded as a feeling that people from another civilization are easy to be impacted and experience rejected by local civilization. Another clear definition ( Furnham 2010 ) is that civilization daze is a feeling of powerlessness from can non accommodate and get by the new environment. Despite Pedersen and Brzeska ( 2011 ) thought civilization daze is inevitable, it could demo different extents by different pupils who have or non adequate experience with this. Additionally, it could be overpowering or non, last from hebdomads or months or old ages ( Pedersen & A ; Brzeska 2011 ) . Therefore, the alteration of civilization environment non merely bring forth some emotional issues, but besides conduct some obvious psychological emphasis such as anxiousness, confusion and hopeless ( Saylag 2014 ) . To clearly analyze civilization, Pedersen and Brzeska ( 2011 ) split it to four phases including: Euphoria or Honeymoon Stage ; Frustration and Disappointment ; Adjustment and Recovery ; Acceptance and Adaptation. Although this is a theoretical frame, it is truly helpful for pupils to understand and get by with civilization clangs. As Ferraro ( 2002 ) said, since civilization daze have emerged diverse symptoms, the disadvantages is difficult to command and foretell. In add-on, he besides indicated that non every people will hold all symptoms, but most people will see some. There is no uncertainty that civilization daze is hard to get the better of. If feeling weakness, anxiousness and disquieted accumulate, the extent of mental emphasis and interpersonal troubles could be so serious that people may hold obstructions to concentrate on analyzing and understanding the local civilization. Furthermore, Saylag ( 2014 ) pointed out that although it is unescapable to face civilization daze, it is necessary to fix before move to another state as possible. So, elaborate readying could be a nucleus method to assist people acquiring assurance and accommodating new environment.
