There is documented research that many international students live in isolation from their Austaralian peers and even though for about five years live among Australians, they depart without having clear knowledge about Australians and their culture.This research explores the cross cultural interactions of international Middle-Eastern (IME) students from Arabic speaking countries in both educational and social contexts"--Abstract.
