I come from a small village called Rouffach. You know those places where there are a few people and where everyone knows everything about everyone. London is the most beautiful and biggest project of my life. I came here for a new adventure!
London is not as difficult as you think. My country is similar to this one so I quickly adapted. In this country, nobody cares about the way you dress or what you are doing in life. Here, there is a mix of several ethnicities, open-mindedness and respect for others. Nobody judges you and the mentality is very open. That’s what I always wanted.
The English language is not easy to learn but if the motivation and positive thoughts are there then there are no problems. After a few weeks, you will be fluent in English. What is good in Bethnal Green is that it has everything nearby – pharmacies, shops, bars and restaurants. One would almost not want to see other London locations.
For those who still hesitate, I would say, “Stop! Stop thinking and follow your instincts!” London is the best thing that can happen to you!
