M: Yeah, it’s quite a lot shorter actually.

W: (4)When Marine Hayashi first arrived at American University in 2013, she was a little afraid. “I got homesick and I cried almost every day when I was in freshman year. And also, since English is my second language… I worked very hard.”
Hayashi is originally from the north of Japan. After three years at an international high school, she decided to attend a university in the U.S. Also, both of her parents earned graduate degrees from universities in the U.S.
It was not long before Hayashi started enjoying her life as an international student. (5)Joining three student groups helped her make friends from the U.S. and other countries. Hayashi will graduate in 2016 with a four-year degree in Communication Studies. The cost of an undergraduate degree program as an international student at American University is $61,157 a year.
“It’s much higher for normal people. I am finding ways to pay the high cost like most other international students. (6)I asked for financial aid when I first apply to this university. The university judges it by my academic history, and then decides to give financial aid or not.” She said. Studying in a country that is not your own country can be difficult. Life can be lonely and the cost may be high. (7)But Hayashi says that the experience is worth it.
