Expat life

Are you wondering what living abroad will be like? Did you just set foot in your host country? Even if you prepared your expat adventure efficiently, fitting into a new country sometimes can be quite challenging. Not only do you have to adjust to a different culture and learn a foreign language but you also often need to rebuild everything. Settling abroad is an extremely exciting process during which you will be very busy integrating into a new workplace, making friends, reorganizing family life, dealing with paperwork, exploring the neighborhood and trying new hobbies. Expatriation also causes many much more personal changes: you will be building new adaptability skills, developing a bicultural identity and maybe beginning to see your home country differently. Expat life is all about gaining intercultural competence.
