With the development of China’s reform and opening up, more and more Chinese students choose to get a better, higher education abroad. It is known that thousands of Chinese students go to America to get a higher education and the number of them is still increasing every year. However, it is not an easy process to get a good accommodation in an unfamiliar place for an international student, especially when they have totally different languages and traditions.
