在大多数人的印象中,留学生活应该是美好,充满乐趣的。能学习到国外多元的文化,能接触到先进的高等教育,能看到在国内看不到的东西,还能品尝到各国地道的美食,难道不是幸福的日子吗?

Well, overseas study can be tough, or at least not as easy as you'd imagined. Sometimes you have to put up with some unpleasantness

known only to yourself.

但事实上,留学是条艰辛路,留学生生活远没有想象中的那么美好,有些苦,永远都只有自己懂。

Here are some of the differences you might find between living in China, studying overseas and coming back home again.
