Moving to a foreign country is difficult. You have to leave behind everything you know, the family you love, the friends you hold dear, the food that cheers you up. This is difficult and heart breaking on its own but then imagine moving to someplace new. The people are different. The culture might be different. Even the language being spoken might be different. Everything would have suddenly changed.
You would feel lost.
So clearly moving to a foreign country is tough but it can be easier for you at the least less over whelming if you remembered to do a few things before you get there.
Learn the language
This is not an easy task. Learning a foreign language requires a lot of patience and hard work. you need to put in effort to learn a new language. You have to not just learn what to say, you need to understand the written form of the language and learn to write it as well. You have to pronounce the words right and understand what is being said to you at least to the point you can hold a conversation. It is much easier to do the before you move so that when you do move, you would not feel like a fish out of water. You can understand what the locals say and communicate with them properly.
When you cannot understand what is being spoken you would end up feeling like an outcast so you should know the language in the beginning itself, so that you can fit in with the locals and feel comfortable.
Try to hire a vehicle
If you know how to drive and you are licensed to drive in the foreign country, you should definitely look into car rental services. In the beginning it might make sense to use taxis or cab services to get around the city but as times passes, this can cost you a lot. If you choose to go for a rental, you can drive to where you want to go and save money. This is because you would only pay for fuel and the rental amount. You would not be paying for any hidden surcharges which are very common in taxi services.
So long term car rental in addition to being cheap would allow you to explore the city on your own. A way to become more comfortable in the place you are going to live in is to become familiar with it. When you drive, you learn the rods, you learn landmarks, and you learn to love the place you are in.
So before you go, try to get an international driving license and talk to companies and check how much rental costs. Learn the information so that when you go there you would be able to get everything sorted fast.
Always remember the above. Make the effort to learn about the place you are going in and prepare yourself for the life ahead of you. It will make things easier and the move would become something you would hold dear.
