Recently, one of my colleague has gone abroad with her family. they will be go to unite state,when we heard this news, we are very proud of him and also make a little envy,it is a large change of our life,no matter this chance is good or not, that's a chance, when we stay in the same place for a long time. we will very lazy to do anything and also stop to make any exciting things.is it very easy to make the processing on abroad? in my mind, American person's life is difference form ours.how long were they in a good condition? good luck and have a nice day!

Hello! You say right. I also think so,a person a long time at one place,over time ,there will be fatigue,there is no passion.If you change a place,morale will be greatly changed.This is a basic human attribute,so change is better than no change.Bless you!

It's a little difficult to read your discussion, but I understand that a colleague of yours moved to the USA and was very excited about it. The questions is how long will they remain happy to be in the USA? I hope this is what you are asking. The answer is what did they expect? Life is very different here, are they with people they know, are they in a large city? Do they like their job, does it pay well? All these a questions the will determine how they like relocation. If they are use to being close to family and friends, it may not be very long before they miss them and get homesick. I know that there are many things we take for granted, but nothing can replace personal relationships.

What an adventure for your co-worker! I hope the family likes it here. They will find it quite different from China, depending on where they live. I think it is good, especially for children, to live in a foreign country for a year or two. It opens their mind to new things and ideas.

Even if I am already in the United States but I will not bring my family here - home sweet -home. I always go back home twice a year. I have some siblings going to UK for study and work but they are going to stay there forever nor ask my parents to stay there.

Well, it's always good to have a change in one's working environment or their family life ^_^ For, both are interlinked to each other ^_^ BEing posted abroad means some kind of recognition to their work performance, and thus the company feels confident of sending him/her abroad to set up a new market etc.. BUt in the meantime, family wont be forgotten, and this is what a good company should do.. haha =D

I am a translator for international matchmaking affairs, so I have witnessed several cases of immigration. One case (also my friend) just got US visa a few days ago. She is happy that she can be with her husband soon. There is nothing to be proud, it is just a natural movement, just like people from northeast china go to work in Shenzhen. Now the world is getting small. So, if people move the other countries, that's very natural. Besides, our country is not bad at all, and lots of foreigners are coming to China too. There are lots of living difference between Chinese and western people, so it is a big chanllenge for your friend. I agree that if people keep living in same place, then they get lazy. So, some moving should be good. It would be good if everybody has chance to go and look around :)

My family doesnt have any plans to move abroad. We are too much grounded on our roots here at home. It would be quite difficult if we are going to uproot it and start on a new life with nothing on a new far away place. Though I think my Uncle is planning to retire in America. They will be staying at my Aunt's sisters' neighborhood. My cousins are going to migrate sooner or later because they took up nursing. When they pass the board exams and are able to work abroad they're going to migrate as well. Im not sure if my other cousins and family have plans to move abroad. But as for me, I would still like my home to be my home. Ill just visit and travel to new places for vacation but eventually retire in my hometown.^_^

Now I understand, I think. Your question was how long it will take a family to be assimilated into the American culture. That depends on the family. For some, it does not take long after they learn to speak English. Others, it seems, never do really become Americans. They prefer to retain the language and habits of their native country. For some, I wonder if they would have prefered to have stayed there.

I've never, nor will I ever have the opportunity to live abroad. My husband, on the other hand, did the majority of his growing up in Germany. He was born not too far from where we now live. However, when he was two years old his mother married the man that he knows as his father, who was in the Army. They would live in Germany for four years and then live in Oklahoma for four years. He says that living over there was a good experience, but it is really not something that he wants to do again.
