I was completely shocked barely a week after my arrival in Denmark when my Danish supervisor asked me not to call him by his first name, not his title. But it bridged a huge gap of tension and helped to build my self-confidence. It developed my thinking and approach in issue solving.

I was first shocked by the fact that there were student group projects in mostly all courses, and that one's grade depends on group performance more than on individual performance. I later got used to it.I realized how this imitated achievements in the real world.
My three years experience in Denmark is one that will live with me for life. The experience was eye-opening as I learnt a lot socially and culturally aside my academic learning.
My Danish experience was awesome. Danes are beautiful people, even though initially not open. The language is quite hard to learn, but it is not a huge problem because almost every Dane speaks English. Denmark is a very orderly society and I loved the clean air.
