My Life in a Foreign Country
Why does(do) people moved to(move) another country for a living(to live)even though they knew(know) it was(is) not easy to adapt to(the life there)? People think they will have a new life from a new place, and also it’s easier to change their life. My life was(have) changed when(since) I came to live in the United States.
First of all, my life was(have) changed because I have a better education. Education is very important to everybody. It is the only way to change your life. For example, in my country, the education was not that good. We didn’t have any(omit) equipment to practice what we have(omit) learned. We only looked at (followed) the example in the book and listened to the teacher’s explanation and tried to understand it(what was taught). For instance, in chemistry(Chemistry) class, we needed a lot of equipment to test different kinds of chemicals. On the other hand(However), we have(had) nothing(no equipment) to use beside our book(to carry out the tests/experiments). On the contrary(By contrast), the education in the United States was(is) really good. They have all (the) equipment for student(s)to use. I learned(learn) more when I have hand-on experience. It’s helped me understand what I have learned.
Secondly, the way of living(living environment) also changed my life. People get affect(are influenced) by the environment where they live. In my country, (I find) people were more welcome(are generally more friendly) than (those) in the United States. Our house was always open until we went to sleep. We know(knew) our neighbor very well and helped each other a lot. For example, I went to my neighbor('s) house and played on(in) their backyard almost every day even though (there was) nobody home. Unlike, the living in the United States is very secure(insecure?). They closed their house(keep their house locked) all the time and when people knocked(knock) on their door, they did not even opened the door but looked at(peep through) the hole to see who was that(outside); if they know that person they will opened(open) the door but if not they will(would) pretend like nobody stayed home(is in). Furthermore, they did(do) not know their neighbor well. I have lived here for almost five years but I had never seen my neighbor that lived on the backside of (behind) my house. That was very interesting to me.(I find this very interesting)
In conclusion, (I find that) education and the way of living (living enviroment) have changed(greatly shaped) my life. The environment did affect on how a person grown up and how they reacted.(The environmental factor does play a major role in mouding a person's character)\
