All essays at ESLBEE.COM are by university students who have given written permission for their work to be published in this site. If you copy/paste an essay and turn it in as your own, it is a very serious academic offence.
The penalties for plagiarism in most universities are very high. From a policy perspective, almost certainly the first incident of plagiarism will get written into the student's permanent record, and a second offence will get a student expelled. From a personal perspective, when your teacher discovers plagiarism (and they almost always do), it not only affects the grade on an essay, but the school's policies once set in motion are always very embarrassing.
From a different perspective, the University of California at Berkeley shows how good documentation makes you look better. They say "Citations allow readers to further explore your sources, show the depth and scope of your research, and add credibility to your work" UC Berkeley.
The reasons to avoid plagiarism are extremely persuasive. Instead of plagiarizing, read widely to see how other writers write, and then take the steps necessary do develop your own writing voice.
Usually becoming a foreign student in order to study in another city can change your life in many aspects. Living in a city far away from home can bring many consequences which almost always change a student’s life. When I became a foreign student, many things changed or had to change. You do not live with your family, so usually you have to learn how to live in harmony with others, how to do things by yourself, how to move to other places, etc. Being a foreign makes you learn a lot of things, and at the beginning it can be somewhat difficult as it happened to me. That is why the purpose of this paper is to discuss the three main effects of being a foreign student.
The main effect and the one that affects you most is the fact that you do not live with your parents and in your house, which means that you will not enjoy its commodities. It was so good when your mom cooked for you or when she made your bed. Your dad took you to school, and when classes finished, you returned to your room and made yourself completely comfortable. But becoming a foreign student means that you will live in a dormitory or that you will rent an apartment. Usually you have to take care of dirty dishes, messy rooms, and cooking. This means you have to learn many new things, like how to cook several dishes. In a few words, you have to learn how to be independent.
Another effect is that you have to find your way around the city, so you have to learn the main parts of the city. If you have a car, it may be easier to explore the city. You can just get lost and see where each street takes you, and then find a way back home. But if you don’t have a car, you need to learn how to get around by walking, in buses, or with taxis. For this you may find out about bus routes or find out how much it costs to use taxis, and in this way you can plan the time it will take you to get from your house to school, for example. This will force you to plan your time better, and maybe you will have less available time during the day. This may decrease the time you have to do homework or to hang out with your friends, for example. But over time, you learn how to plan your activities in a better way.
A foreign student may also find himself feeling somewhat lonely, since arriving in a new city means you don’t know anyone. You may be lucky if another friend from your city comes with you, but usually you are alone. It is important to start meeting people and making friends. In this way it will be much easier to get used to being a foreign student. You will have new friends to party with. Sometimes friends can also help you in a lot of situations, like when you run out of money, when you need to go to your house quickly but you don’t have a car, or when you need to get something that is not easily found. But most of all, with friends you can have a great time and learn a lot of things.
Leaving your house and going to another city to study is an experience in your life that cannot be compared to any other experience in your life. You learn how to be independent, and you get to meet new people. It may be somewhat difficult to live without your parents in another city, but this makes you learn how to live your life better and how to appreciate what you have, like your parents and your belongings. Besides, you get to appreciate the things you achieve during your life because you learn that your goals are not achieved easily, but that they cost a lot of work and effort. In conclusion, being a foreign student is great!
