Stephanie He Huang – International Student
My name is He Huang, and I am a Chinese doctoral student in the ESOL/Bilingual Education Program. I chose to study at the University of Florida because UF is a comprehensive university that offers a wide range of courses and has a balance between teaching and research. After two years of study at UF, I was so motivated by my learning experiences in the College of Education and the professors that I decided to continue my studies in the Ph.D. program.
我的名字叫黄鹤， 一位来自中国的博士生，我的专业是双语教育。 我选择来到佛罗里达大学因为这是一个综合类的大学， 她不仅能提供各种各样的课程，并且在教学和研究方面都有侧重。经过两年的学习后， 在教育学院的学习经历和教授都使我受益良多。所以，我又选择在佛罗里达大学攻读博士学位。
The professors at the College of Education are very professional and supportive. They choose important reading materials for students to develop understanding about the field and create a classroom environment that encourages critical thinking and respects different opinions. I am very grateful for all the learning experience at the College of Education. It has challenged me, but more importantly, it has helped me grow academically and personally.
教育学院的教授都非常专业并给予学生很多支持。他们选择优秀的文章给学生阅读，让他们自己去建立对专业知识的理解， 并且构建一个学习环境鼓励学生有批判性的思维和尊重不同的意见。我非常感谢教育学院给我提供的环境和学习经历。 这些学习经历带给我挑战，更重要的事， 她让我在学术上和个人能力上都得到了提高。
My advice to international students who come from a different culture is to communicate with your professors through emails or meetings. And remember to follow your dreams, your passion, and your beliefs.
