Abstract

European universities have opened their doors to the students from beyond European Union, mostly from Asian countries. However, students coming to Europe may face at once not only a culture shock but also a linguistic and informational one. In this paper I (1) briefly explain the cultural background of Asian students; (2) argue for the work on cultural differences to understand them by the European educators; (3) advocate for empowering the incoming students with information literacy skills, to allow them to feel self-confident in searching for reliable, evaluated information; to help them understand how the cultural differences are produced, so they can deal better with the classroom behaviors of teachers and peers, the discussed topics, and ameliorate their communication skills.
