This question is an exact duplicate of:

Q1. Have I understood correctly? Thank you :)

A. Newcastle is keen to enhance its already strong standing among students both at home and abroad.

= students who are in the UK and students who are abroad/overseas

B. Newcastle is keen to enhance its already strong standing among students both from home and abroad.

The phrases may be similar to those in some of my previous posts, but the questions are actually different. :) = students who are from the UK and students who are from abroad/overseas

Q2. Do C and D mean the same thing? If so, what do they refer to? A or B? Thank you :)

C. Newcastle is keen to enhance its already strong standing among both domestic and international students.

D. Newcastle is keen to enhance its already strong standing among students both domestically and internationally.

The phrases may be similar to those in some of my previous posts, but the questions are actually different. However, I will avoid asking a similar question in a new post next time. My apologies and thank you so much for your great patience with a new member. Thank you :)

  • They all amount to the same thing, although worded differently. – Yosef Baskin Jun 12 '17 at 12:42
  • Could you please provide a link to the original? – AmE speaker Jun 12 '17 at 12:49
  • Thank you for your answers, Yosef Baskin and Mari-Lou A! (By the way, thank you for making my previous post visually appealing. I just followed suit) However, it seems to me there is a subtle difference between A and B, but I am not sure if I have understood correctly. I have changed my wording this time to make myself clearly understood :D – Chinese Jun 12 '17 at 12:49
  • Students at home = students in the UK. Students abroad = students who are abroad (outside of England). It is the same as your last question (meaning A). – AmE speaker Jun 12 '17 at 13:02

    @Chinese- Over the past five days, you have asked five practically identical questions, or at least questions with the same essential concept, all of which have been poorly received here, in the form of down-votes and votes to close. Allow me to strongly encourage you to think about your real source of concern, consolidate the core of that into a single question, then post that single question at our companion site, ell.stackexchange.com. Good luck to you, I hope you do stick with the Stack Exchange Network in some form. – cobaltduck Jun 12 '17 at 14:42
