The very first thing that I used to ask the people from my home country who had lived abroad, was always this; if they had found it difficult to communicate in English. And their reply was, honestly, always this: “Of course not, don’t worry”. For me finally, it wasn’t that easy.
Edinburgh is too beautiful for anyone to just sit around at home on weekends!” This is the motto I live by since I got here. It’s quite easy to follow even for a not-so-outdoorsy girl like me. But fall is already here.
My family and some friends told me that settling in a new country would be a very complex and intense process and that it would take me some time to get used to living and studying here in Edinburgh. Well, those weren’t exactly their words.
