    Default Re: emigrate and immigrate migrate

    Emigrate- e for exit might help remember- it's leaving. I left the UK, so I emigrated from there. To the people where I live now, I have immigrated. Migration is just the movement.

    You can migrate to or from, depending on whether you talk about the departure or the arrival.
