10 Things You Need to Know: A Practical Guide for Internationals Moving to the U.S.

Free sample

We all know moving is difficult. Packing. Saying farewell. Resettling in a new place. These are bittersweet moments for us all.

However, moving away from your homeland is beyond difficult. Relocating to another country is one of the hardest things a person can do. Learning another language. Connecting to a new community. Adapting to an unfamiliar culture. Putting down roots can often take years, but this book will guide you through the transition.

“10 Things You Need to Know” is designed to offer support during the in-between time, the interval between leaving your home country and when you’ve adjusted to a new life in the U.S. In this practical guide, you’ll find helpful information about the type of clothes you need, transportation options, visiting an American home, and more! All ten themes are inspired by the author’s personal experiences and those of her many International friends.

You don’t have to take this huge step alone. Let the knowledge of others remove unnecessary anxiety and make your move easier.

Welcome to the U.S.A.!
