Here are some simple ways to help strengthen your soft skills when studying abroad:
Analyzing yourself is a great starting point. You should always write down key things about yourself. List out your weaknesses, your strengths and try to come up with a plan. The plan should focus on the growth of you as a person and also in your career. You should understand properly where you are lagging. If you are weak in making short conversations then you should work on that, if you hesitate to talk to new people then you should work on that as well.
Join small communities or NGOs and societies
Joining small NGOs or societies will help you. In small NGOs you will meet new people and you have to talk to new people in order to help them. Your experience of being social will increase due to this reason. Volunteering for any kind of non-profit organization will definitely help you to improve your people skill set. As a member of a non-profit organization you will meet and interact with unknown people and work with them in an unknown environment totally. There you may get chances to showcase your leadership skills. This work will be beneficial for you to get practical experience and build your confidence.
Participate in skill-building programs
There are many organizations where you can join to build specific skills. Universities and colleges organize workshops for skill development and these workshops have been proven to be useful for many people. Try and participate in more of such activities to learn new skills and sharpen your own skills
