I used to live in america. I was born and raised there until i was nine years old, then i moved to the Terceira (one of the nine islands in the Azores-Portugal). I knew a little bit of portuguese because my grandparents and parents lived here when they were younger. I actually moved here on the year of the twin tower attacks, a couple months before. I adapted to the ways things are here and got to learn better the language. It is a better place to live than the USA, it is much more safer for kids. Anyway have any of you moved to a diferent country? Did you struggle to learn the language and how do you feel about living there now?

I have, and it was very hard to learn the language. I am still getting used to the change! The climate, the people... everything is very different here, so it takes time, I think!

It does take time but after a while it does get easier. We just need to want to adapt.

I was born & raised in Seoul, Korea till I was 14 years old. Then my family came to U.S. I moved around a lot since then, within the states. I didn't really have hard time learing english. Took me little over a year to learn enough english to hold everyday conversation. About 10 years ago, went back to Korea for my brother's wedding. People told me then that when I spoke Korean, I had foreigner's accent. Really? I didn't realize that. Then I lived in Canada for about a year because of my job. Didn't really have hard of a time adjusting. Language wasn't really an issue. Now back in U.S. I don't really have any preference in where I live. Just trying to make the best of where ever I am at the time.
