The methodology of this paper takes a holistic approach. The purpose is to evaluate international students’ overall language learning experiences outside of their home country. The participants are two students of Korean descent and one student of Chinese descent who share the same academic goals towards second language acquisition. The responses were collected by a prepared questionnaire and unstructured interviews and later analyzed by the inductive reasoning process to identify specific categories of the responses. The present study revealed that the participants’ earlier preparation from their home country plays a significant contribution to their success abroad.
