After 2 years' study in Renmin University of China I came to University of Warwick to continue my study. It is known that the faculty of Warwick are professional and the facilities are advanced, which is more important, I live in the environment that is filled with English.
I arrived at Britain on Sep.29th. After 11 hours' journey I felt tired, but when I was on the National Express to Coventry I saw the green grasses, big and fantastic tree, and several groups of sheep and horses. All of them made my mind clearer. The contryside looked very quiet and natural, which also made me peaceful.
It was nearly 9:00pm. when I got Warwick, so I couldn't see the view of my school clear. However, my first impression of the campus is big and quiet. I'm sure it will be a ideal place to study.
During the following days, I recognized that it was not so easy to adapt to the life in UK. I registered with Health Centre, opened an account in the bank, bought a SIM card, and went to Tesco for many times. I found I can't quite follow the local people, sometimes I understood them several seconds later, it usually made me embarrassed. In addition, the traffic rules are different from China; people walk by the left.
In a word, I have a long way to run both on study and life, but I believe it is a good choose to come to Britain.
