  1. I think that personally one of the problems that I consider most important is the loss of communication between family and friends, in addition to the fact that many times you start from scratch, to meet new people, in addition to the fact that sometimes they do. . they do not speak that second language and jobs are more difficult to get due to lack of experience in that work environment

  2. In my opinion, I think that the main problems as Mexicans that we have abroad are that today it is less, but most Mexicans do not have a very good level of English and that complicates finding work or in general being hired by those who live there.
    One of the things that was most complicated for my uncle was, as I mentioned, being made a Mexican in the United States, since about 20 years ago things were different from how we know them today.

  3. In my opinion it is difficult from one day to the next to be there and you don’t know any English, I have an aunt who went to the United States and at first it was complicated, because she didn’t have the English that was spoken in the United States , she was not so fluent, much less the best accent; but little by little she was learning and so her children were learning and handling English better. Yes, I am clear that at the beginning it is complicated, but after a while that will benefit you; you will find a better job and have a better quality of life

    1. In my opinion, if it is too difficult to try to get used to a totally different culture , And if your original language is not English, it is also difficult to communicate all the time with a new language.
      Also when wanting to find a good job that is well paid it is difficult, because it is clearly not the same as what is done in your country.

  4. In my opinión It is difficult to learn English because they go to the United States without knowing English or because the Americans are also racist towards them because they are Mexican or also because they do not know how to speak English although the advantages are that you earn more money than in Mexico it is difficult because they have to look for a home and food and even a job so they can survive and send money to their family, for example, my uncles went to Texas a few years ago and they stayed to live there and they already have their nationality and it cost them work because they were Mexicans but in the end they already have money and etc

  5. I think there are many problems that can experiment the abroad people, first, they can’t speak the new language very well, they aren’t accustomed to the traditions, food and people of that place.
    Sometimes the native people isn’t nice with the foreign, they don’t have the same opportunities.
    other problems that the foreign experiment is to find a place to live, a place to work and especially adapt to the people. anyways live abroad is a good experience and any person have different experiences, for example, my uncle Dalia lives in USA and her principal problem is speaking English fluently.

  6. My opinion is that communication is very important when a Mexican goes to the United States, since with communication in English you can understand absolutely everything. , for example , it is used to make friends , talk to other people , buy , go to school , get a job and much more , without communication in English you can not live in the United States

  7. In my opinion, a person goes to live in the US, it’s probably because of the salary they get from working. In my experience, I have a friend who went to work because economic gain is better, but after a conversation we talked With Javier, it was that speaking English is a problem since you don’t understand their language.
    in a last class in high school 4, we saw that for other people the traditions different from the native country is different.

  8. In my opinion, one of the challenges that people encounter when living in another country is the clash of cultures that one can encounter since we have different thoughts. My experience with my uncle was that he went to live in the United States for work and It cost him to adapt to the lifestyle, over time he adapted and learned his language (English).

  9. I think it is fundamental for Mexicans to speak English when it comes to finding a job. It will give us access to a better education, to the possibility of a better job, in finding friends, but without knowing how to speak it you will not be able to do this in an easy and simple way.

  10. Well, I think that people who live abroad have problems such as being away from their family and friends, it’s hard for them to save,
    distrust at times of their own abilities, they are
    alone the traditions and festivals are no longer the same because they spend them far from their relatives

  11. I personally believe that it is very difficult for a foreign person to get used to being in a different country from their own, there can be several problems since we are completely alien to the place and the culture, the language is one of the biggest problems we can have, the People don’t always know how to speak English, so it’s more difficult to communicate.
    However, living in a different country can be a very good experience.

    1. My opinion about the article would be that it is good to get carried away by the adventure but, also, it is important to plan what your next destination will be to know what you will find. Living in a foreign country is the most intense way of getting to know a different culture and it has its consequences. It may sound overwhelming at first, so let’s start with the good things that this experience could bring. Still, living abroad is a unique experience, although it has its advantages and disadvantages. You will return full of experiences and stories to tell your loved ones

  12. People who make the decision to want to live in the United States have many disadvantages because you enter a new modality, as a way of thinking. living, working, this becomes complicated because there is no one who can teach you to learn in a better way and thus fit in, but the good thing is that with the passage of time you learn a new language or way of living or seeing things.

  14. LOS PROBLEMAS QUE PUEDE TENER UNA PERSONA EN EL EXTRANGERO SON:MUDARSE,APREDER OTRO IDIOMA,TRADICIONES,SOCIALISMO, Y ORAS MAS, POR ESO YO SUGIERO QUE ANTES QUE VALLA ALGUIEN AL EXTRANGERO QUE TENGA MUY CONCIENTE ESO Y TENER LO MUY APRENDIDO, AVECES UNOS VAN AL EXTRAGERO SIN SABER NADA Y SE LES DIFICULTA MUCHO MAS.

  15. Going abroad can have good things but also bad one of them is having to get used to the traditions and way of life of the people who advise in the United States, it will be difficult if you do not have the mentality of knowing anything about English since that influences a lot but the good part is that you can learn a new language and culture in this foreign case

  16. I believe that living in a foreign country represents many challenges
    for example, adapting to a culture shock and adapting to a new job and different working conditions
    in my case I consider that the most difficult thing is the language since we are usually not used to hearing accents from different parts of the world

  17. In my most judicious opinion, I think that the biggest problems I have in communication is that
    some jobs are extremely difficult to understand since they do not understand each other as far as
    my family and friends do not speak the second language. I think that to start you have to start
    from scratch, I also think that I need knowledge in the work environment

  18. Hello Karen, I am Mexican, I have a family that decided to go abroad, like to study and work, they suffer a lot of racism from the Americans, and they suffer from the lack of papers for them to be able to be legal in that country, they struggled a lot to find some housing where they were accepted, but thank God they are still fighting and they are doing a little better. luck

  19. Currently, people who go abroad have problems of discrimination and moreover they find it very hard with English, since in Mexico English is very poor. but in the US they know that Mexicans are hard workers and are willing to work whatever they want, but in some cases they abuse it, it seems very unfair to me because honestly, without us, the United States would not have people who generate income for the country

  20. In my opinion it is okay to get carried away by wanting to know another country but, in addition, it is important to know what your next destination will be and how you are going to take it since Living in a foreign country is very intense since you know a different culture but you are still going to Having culture clashes may sound scary at first, but you have to think positive and see what this experience could bring. Still, living abroad is a unique experience, although it has its advantages and disadvantages.

  23. Hi Karen, thanks for this information. I tell you that the same thing happens in Mexico, for many Mexicans it is a dream to live abroad, especially in the United States, but for others it is not. Many Mexicans go looking for work without speaking English, they are often discriminated against, overexploited, in short, treated badly. On the other hand, for few Mexicans (especially from the upper class), they are treated well, this is sad because there is no equity and respect, and unfortunately it happens in many countries.

  24. The attitudes of Mexicans towards migrants may be explained by the fear of encountering competition in the labor market, as well as by social concerns such as ethnicity or threats to security. To explore these hypotheses, we use data from the project Mexico, the Americas and the World. Our results are in line with the attitudes towards immigrants in advanced countries. Social disposition, rather than economic concerns, better explain attitudes towards immigrants in general and towards both groups of foreigners in particular. Specifically, we find that concerns about security and a moderate level of ethnocentrism determine attitudes and opinions of Mexicans towards immigrants.

  25. Moving to another place very different from yours as a foreigner can have good and bad things, one of them can be to meet people or make new friends. When you move abroad it is not easy at all and much less if you are not a social person but this can be fixed by meeting new people through social networks, such as facebook something that we all do nowadays, another problem when moving could be the language, but this is something that is solved with practice or with courses to master the language, which in this case is English

  26. In Mexico, migration has been a very difficult process due to problems such as discrimination and lack of support in communication. Communication is important to socialize with people, also when migrating they leave without speaking English and cause many problems for not being able to communicate with people, therefore it is more difficult for Mexicans to find work in other countries

  27. The problems that this entails are not being able to get a job very quickly, being away from family and friends, it will cost you to save money, traditional festivals and culture will not be the same as what you are used to, the safest thing is that you will you will miss the gastronomy of your country, challenge your abilities as a person, treacherous loneliness will be known, you will feel less safe not being in your country

  28. Living abroad has many advantages but also disadvantages such as the language barrier, which makes communication difficult, as well as the use of different currencies to pay, there is also the cultural shock, things that are well seen in your country abroad are not. it is optional it is not knowing anything arriving in a new country can be difficult because you do not know where you are located but if you have family or friends this can be easier another is the change in laws all countries have different forms of government and different activities considered as crimes

  29. living abroad can be difficult if it is not something you want my brother Habid lives in Puerto Rico and he says that it is difficult to get used to food that you have not tried also the weather can be Different but you can get used to it you have to be patient and know where she is and it is very important to have knowledge about the place and the area in which you will visit and it is very important speak english and understand it

  30. Thank you for sharing your experience. Very well written!
    I’m also an expat from South Asia living in Sweden and and I can say from my own personal experience that you’ve covered all the important points very nicely.
