What I like about working with international students:

The longer I teach international students the more I believe all our cultures are alike more than they are different. I try to emphasize these commonalities in the classroom and encourage my students to get to know each other. When I watch a student becoming friends with someone from another culture through my class activities, this gives me a good feeling.  That’s one of the reasons I like all students to participate and contribute.
