For parents who want their child to become a University student or College student, it is necessary to take a more careful approach to this issue. Today it is considered prestigious to get an education abroad and this is true, but be prepared for a complete change in your child's life and adaptation to other conditions. Very often children are faced with the problem of not knowing the language in a new country, so try to learn the language in advance (in Northern Cyprus, the main language is Turkish, but all universities and private colleges teach in English). If your child is sociable and easily establishes contact among their peers, then there will be no problems, and it will take 4 to 6 months to learn English, because they are among native speakers. At first, prepare for a change of mood, so communicate more often and maintain your child's morale. As a rule, it takes a year to adapt.
