Review:

"I have been reading Dr. Shiraev's books for a number of years, and I must admit that he always impresses me with the variety of practical assignments, interviews, questions, etc., that substantially enhance understanding of his texts as well as encourage students to read them very carefully…This [The Accent of Success] will be a true guidebook for thousands of students who are likely to be confused during the first weeks or months of their stay in the USA."—Sergei Tsytsarev, Ph.D., Hofstra University



"An outstanding guide to help students understand what they are experiencing, as well as how to overcome these seemingly hopeless problems and difficulties. The tone, in fact, demonstrates that the author (an immigrant himself) has a lot of empathy for what the students are currently experiencing."—Dave Sperling, ESLcafe.com

From the Back Cover:

With the population of international and immigrant students in the United States on the rise, The Accent of Success is a timely complement in helping students adjust to the academic and social environment of American colleges and universities. A first of its kind, The Accent of Success is based on psychological theories and research. The authors not only have demonstrated their knowledge of the American system of higher education and opportunities that international students have in the United States, but also have presented anecdotal, empirical, and theoretical evidence of various factors that stand to either impede or facilitate student adjustment and, thus, academic success, all the while making the information accessible to the students on a practical level.

The Accent of Successoffers:

  • Real world perspectives of what international students can expect to experience in their pursuit of higher education in the United States
  • Accurate information related to obtaining visas, entering the United States, and maintaining legal status
  • An effective resource to deal with issues related to cultural adjustment for international students
  • Realistic presentations of important cultural aspects of American life
  • Useful overviews and descriptions of the system of higher education in the United States.
