When you travel to New York City to study at the Bluedata International Institute, one of the first things you will have to deal with is finding a place to live.

Packing for a trip abroad can feel overwhelming, but keep in mind that you do not need as much as you think; there will be stores with everything you need once you get there. Watch this video for a few tips on what to bring with you if you are a female studying abroad at Bluedata.
Since you will have to carry your own belongings, you should try to pack as lightly as you can. Instead of bringing several complete outfits, bring clothing that you can wear in different ways, or pieces that can be matched together to form different outfits. Avoid bringing hair dryers and straighteners, and make sure to bring travel-sized shampoo and conditioner bottles. It is important to bring comfortable shoes, a light jacket, and plenty of socks and underwear as well.

To help you during your studies, here are a few tips for ESL students like yourself.

If you put off studying or doing your homework until the weekend, you will quickly run out of time to go over all of the information in a manner that allows you to retain what you are learning. Plan to study 2 hours for every 1 hour of class time.
Attend and Participate in Every Class

With the exception of a family emergency of severe sickness, nothing should keep you from attending and participating in class. ESL class is your best opportunity to practice the language in a safe environment.
Form Study Groups with Classmates

The English language presents a unique set of challenges for ESL students. Of course, the benefits of learning how to speak English far outweigh the personal struggles you are bound to encounter during your studies. To help you feel more comfortable with your new language skills, and to help you excel in your ESL classes, here are a few ways to give your English skills a workout.
Talk to Yourself
Although you probably don’t want to be seen talking to yourself all the time, there are plenty of opportunities throughout the day for you to speak English out loud. Even if you only know a few basic sentences, saying them out loud to yourself will make you a much more confident and effective speaker. You will also become more comfortable with switching from your native language to English on the fly.
Recite Your Favorite Songs and Movies
You probably have a few American songs and movies that you love, so why not use them to practice your English speaking abilities? If you know the words to an American song by heart, sing along or sing to yourself to practice your pronunciation. You can also print out the script to your favorite Hollywood movies and read along with the cast to practice your speaking abilities and perhaps even learn a few new words in the process.
Become the Teacher
One of the most effective ways to retain information is to teach it to someone else. If you have friends or family who are willing to listen, teach them some of the material covered in your ESL classes thus far. This is a great way to go over what you have learned and pinpoint the words or grammar rules that are hardest for you.
If you want to master the English language, Bluedata International Institute can help. We strive to help our international students fully integrate into NYC’s vibrant English speaking community. To learn more about our quality ESL programs, visit our website or call us today at (888) 826-6449.
