Top 10 list of reasons NOT to study abroad

Dunja Nedic, an Australian exchange student at the University of Arizona, has written what must be the definitive Top 10 list of reasons why you should NOT, under any conditions, think about studying abroad. Among my favorites:

2. A disproportionate number of people will think your voice is sexy, regardless of whether this is truly the case. Accents confuse people; you may not like the extra attention.

6. There’s no point in exposing yourself to any cultural diversity. Who needs more variety than what you’ve got right here?

Anyone want to give a shot at covering reasons 11-20?

Thanks to Francis Hult, Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at the University of Texas at San Antonio and editor of The Educational Linguistics List for sending this along!
