Hi guys.
This is second report. However, I dont know whether that it digresses or not. Because I have not been familiar with the way to write report.

Therefore, for your consideration, please tell me "is it a report for my below topic, or not?", I appreciate you kindness :D
Here is the topic report:
You have been asked to write a report for a scholarship committee on the adjustments that overseas students need to make.
Task:
Describe the most important adjustments to learning and writing styles you feel overseas students are likely to need to make and give advice on how they should do this


Going abroad is the important decision that we all want to do in our life. However, overseas students also face with many problems when they study in the other nation. As the consultant, I intend to make some recommendations aimed at enhancing the current state of overseas students.

Firstly, foreign students need to be patient. It takes a long time as few months for the process of adaptation environment such as our routine or ways to learn. For example, in my country, people have been familiar with self-study to encounter their targets. As the result, international students from our country first will practice teamwork confusedly. However, as we all known that teamwork is the best way to gain much more knowledge from a group. Hence, students should accumulate team-work experiences gradually in the out campus activities namely the volunteer campaign. In addition, according to the recent survey, almost students are usually timorous in the new environment. Therefore, it's essential for them to build on their supports such as new friends or new school. It helps change their learning style as well as their life rapidly.

Secondly, international students need to change the way they are writing to adapt to new school. Following the mother language, novices usually get hand writing as their thoughts. However, sometimes it is informal with many professors in new university. Besides, in the future, It's undoubted that they will do many things referring to writing due to their jobs. If they do not prepare writing styles from now on, disregard of this problem usually causes many unexpected results suddenly. Therefore, overseas students should still broaden more and more academic vocabularies to ensure their score satisfactorily in new school and guarantee their career stably in the future.

Finally, go-abroad students need to take advantages of campus resources in their university. Although its responsibility is that helping new students to get best fit with new environment in all respects, many freshmen don't contact directly to them to get fully instructions. Of course, they forfeit an important helping sponsor regretfully. So that, overseas students should lean on the supports from their university as much as possible. It'll certainly adjust learning and writing style to be better as soon as possible.

In order to be go-abroad students, may people must do hard work to reach their target. However, they only need a little more change about learning and writing style to adapt to new environment.

... I think you should specify the purpose here; it's studying abroad and not going abroad. Also, since this is a report, I think it is better to keep in a more generalized manner. This is what I suggest;

Studying abroad is an important decision that many students need to make in their lives.

However, overseas students also face with many problems when they study in the other nation.

For example, in my country, students engage in self-study mostly without studying in groups. This may cause them finding hard to fit into group studying in a foreign country as they begin their studies abroad.

Hi Dumi, I apologize for reply late because of the national holiday. My hometown thoroughly doesnt have Internet :D.

For example, in my country, students engage in self-study mostly without studying in groups. This may cause them finding hard to fit into group studying in a foreign country as they begin their studies abroad.

This sentence enhaces its original very much. However, I'm wondering that this sentence uses the word " study" many times, and I want to replace by "learn" or other words. Do it remain the same meaning of study abroad.

By the ways, Dumi, I always learn new things from you comments :P
