Description

It is not a secret that each one of us have different experiences when meeting people, but all the internationals I have spoken with about meeting locals coincide in the same thing: 

At first finns are shy and do not really talk to foregins. It takes them a while to lose this feeling and feel confident with them. 

Eventhough, after few encounters they are kind and helpful, in general seek the best for exchange students. 

When meeting internationals everything is way easier. Everyone who goes abroad is willing to meet new people therefor are open and seeking for new experiences. 

I'm currently living with around 30 students in a dormitory and each week at least one person proposes a new activity to do. 

At the end all of the internationals have made finnish friends and they also join our plans.
