Reviews

`This book delivers far more than its title suggests, and deserves to be read by providers of tertiary education to overseas students in Australia, as well as the students to whom it is directed. . . A formidable amount of ground is covered. . . This book illustrates the rare combination of concision, comprehensiveness and readability. A must-read for students and lecturers alike, it is to be thoroughly recommended.' -- Robert Morgan, Australian Journal of Education
`In the age of the "global village" this book will enable its future citizens to understand how they can improve their learning experience as they travel to and learn in different countries, contexts and environments. The authors have produced a rigorous yet easy to read book that is full of information, advice and practical tips for the international student. Reading and using this book will improve the quality of the experience for both the student and their teacher.' -- Roger Palmer, Henley Business School, UK
`This book provides an excellent insight into the means of gaining the most out of an international education. It is simple in language, invaluable in cross-cultural behaviour guidance, meaningful in challenging stereotypes, and useful in self-reflection. Quotes from students bring cultural differences to life.' -- Ayse Saka-Helmhout, University of Surrey, UK
`Learning in the Global Classroom is an excellent reference for both university students and for academics who take their responsibilities seriously. This book makes study in another country more do-able, and is very timely given the increasing push for internationalization in universities. What could be an overwhelming challenge for the potential international student is tackled in a logical, reassuring way, with practical strategies that cover personal, social and academic issues. For most students, this text will be an "ongoing" reference, to be referred to as situations arise. Issues that academics often complain about with regard to non-Western students are addressed, such as learning how to speak up in class discussions, critical thinking and punctuality. The text also offers sage advice that would be valuable to students who are returning to study after a prolonged absence. I will certainly recommend this book to both colleagues and students.' -- Paddy O'Toole, Monash University, Australia
