    f monetary or living difficulties

    However, studying the English language in a non-English speaking country can make it possible to keep a stable life. Because to study overseas brings about a lot of monetary or living difficulties

    Does the underlined sound unnatural? Does "living" have to be corrected to something else?

    Re: f monetary or living difficulties

    I don't know what you mean by 'living difficulties. Can you try to explain in other words?

    Re: f monetary or living difficulties

    The underlined phrase is not unnatural except that monetary difficulties ARE living difficulties.

    ... which is easily fixed by using "other living difficulties".

    Re: f monetary or living difficulties

    'Living difficulties' doesn't sound very natural to me. I'd just use 'other difficulties'.
