美国留学:4招教你提高学业成绩

It is not easy for international students to stay on top of their workload, especially when freshmen are in an environment that is far different from their home high school. There is so much free time, many entertainment options and friends that can distract them from finishing homework that is due the next day.

  Once students – particularly new international freshmen – realize that they have done something wrong, their GPA has probably already started going down. Here are a few tips to help you avoid all of that distraction and stay on top of your classes.

  对大部分的留学生来说,能够保持高强度的学习工作量不是一件容易的事,尤其是那些刚刚告别自己国家,告别高中生活,来到一个完全陌生环境的新生,一下子有了这么多的自由时间可以支配,各种新鲜的娱乐活动可供选择,还有来自不同地方的新朋友需要结交,他们难免会分心,忘记了今日事今日毕,将没完成的作业拖到第二天,甚至拖得更久。

  一旦这些留学生,特别是新生,突然意识到自己做的不对了,那么一定是他们的GPA成绩开始直线下降了。这里,小编列举几个小建议,希望可以帮助各位留学生避免过于分心影响学习,保持你的好成绩。

  1. Learn how to say no: International students are always under pressure to fit in and to try to befriend as many American students as possible. It's not bad to say yes to every football, basketball game or party invitation – until you figure out that some of your school work is always left undone.

  It is important to keep in mind that you should sometimes learn how to say no when it comes to choosing between work and play. At the end of the day, making friends is important, but what is more important is that you are in the U.S. to study.

  1、学会说不

  留学生总是很努力地去适应他们的新生活,他们会尽可能地与更多的美国学生去交朋友,压力不小。积极参加足球比赛、篮球比赛或者派对没什么不好,但你要考虑一下你还有多少作业没做完。在学习与工作之间做选择,时刻保持清醒很重要,有时候要懂得适当地拒绝。课余时间,交朋友无可厚非,但更重要的是,你要记得你是来美国学习的。

  2. Get enough sleep: You often have people telling you about how they stayed up all night to write an essay or study for their tests. Do not be fooled into thinking that these students are hard workers and what they do is what you are supposed to do. A college workload can be heavy, but not so heavy that you cannot find time during the day to get the work done.

  Some international students are not given much freedom at home. They are usually told by their parents to go to bed at a certain time. However, as they come to the U.S., there is no more supervision from their parents. Thus, these students are tempted to stay up very late at night and gradually start performing poorly at school.

  Getting enough sleep is extremely important for your academic performance and your health. Your body needs time to regain its energy, and so does your brain.

  2、保证充足的睡眠

  相信经常会有人跟你说,为了考试,他们如何如何熬夜学习写论文。不要傻傻地以为这些学生就是学习认真,你也应该像他们一样。大学的学业负担很重,但还没重到你白天做不完它。

  许多留学生在家没有很大的自由,父母总会在特定的时间提醒他们上床睡觉。但是当他们来到美国,没有了父母的督促,他们开始熬夜,而慢慢地白天的课业自然学得也不好。

  足够的睡眠对你的学业表现与身体健康都非常重要,你的身体需要时间重新储备能量,你的大脑同样也需要时间恢复运转

  3. Do not waste too much time with entertainment: Spending too much time online with YouTube, Netflix or social media can cause your grades to go down. As students typically have much more free time between classes in college, being productive during that time is much more beneficial than spending it watching videos or checking Facebook.

  Many first-year international students in the U.S. have trouble being far away from their friends and family, thus relying on social media as a source of emotional fulfillment. This is not a bad thing, but spending too much time on social media will not help you improve your English speaking or your social skills, and can hurt your academic performance.

  3、不要在娱乐活动上浪费过多的时间

  把大量的时间花在YouTube和Netflix或其他社交媒体上会导致你的成绩下降。在大学里,课余时间多了,把这个时间花在学业上比你花在看视频、刷脸书上要有意义得多。

  在第一年的时候,因为没有了家人和朋友的陪伴,许多留学新生会很依赖社交媒体,以此来填补内心情感的空虚。这不是坏事,但过于沉迷社交媒体可不能帮你提高你的英语口语和社交技能,甚至还会影响你的学业。

  4. Work smart and complete your tasks ahead of time: Whether it is an essay assignment, a test you are going to take, or a project that is worth 15 percent of your grade, you cannot get them done the day before deadline. It is crucial that you check your syllabus frequently and pay careful attention to what is due, when it is due, and how you can make time for it.

  In my personal experience, those writing an essay two weeks before it is due usually gets a higher score than essays written by students who pull all-nighters to get them done.

  Overall, time is your important asset, and what you do during that time is even more important. You can always seek help from your professors, advisers or even family members. However, you are the last one to decide what you can do, and will make out of your time in college.

  4、聪明一点,提前完成你的任务

  不论是一篇论文,一场考试,还是一个项目,它都占你成绩的15%,你不能将它拖到最后期限的前天才做完。你要清楚你的时间表,时刻知道该做什么、什么时候做、要做多久。

  以我的经验,一般提前两周写的论文比你熬一个晚上写出的东西拿到的分数要高得多。

  总之,时间是你自己的,在这些时间里你做了什么很重要。你可以总是向你的教授、顾问甚至家人求助,不过你自己才可以决定你能做什么,你该如何安排大学里的时间。
