As Heng wrote, quoting one of her subjects, “Many things that might seem like ‘common sense to [Americans] in daily life,’ took immense effort for participants to understand because it was ‘all new.’ ” Finding balance: More than half the students reported facing a heavy workload, as they spent extra time reading texts “line by line” and consulting electronic dictionaries and writing multiple drafts of papers.
Students were interested in making American friends, Heng said, but some lacked the time to do so.
