A TikTok user is going viral after sharing the biggest things she’s learned as a British student studying in the U.S.
Some of Feary’s “confusing” lessons are humorous, like how often Southerners say “y’all” and the fact that everyone goes on spring break in Florida “regardless of where you live.”
The college student also explained some trouble she runs into her accent.
“I have to order in an American accent,” Feary explains. “When I want a water, I have to get a wattur because no one understands what I want.”
Feary pointed out some more serious differences as well. For example, she seems to find it strange that Americans usually don’t take college classes in their major until their third year. That’s a fairly big difference from the U.K., where many students earn their degrees in three years total.
TikTokers flocked to the video’s comments with questions and, in many cases, jokes about why Feary would want to leave the U.K.
“Most Americans, me included, will be baffled why you went to GEORGIA,” one user wrote.
“No girl we don’t understand why you would want to come here,” another added.
Thankfully, Leary responded to those questions in a follow-up video, in which she explained her motivations for studying in the U.S.
