One of my good friends is moving to SF, CA for her marriage and job, but the new environment and different culture concern her a lot. Do you have any good suggestions for her situation? Thanks!
I guess the most important thing she can do is learn about the culture so she knows what to expect when she arrives. I know people who have come to this country for the first time and decided to live here, and at first it was a major culture shock to them. However, they were able to learn the language, make friends, and adapt to the American way of life while still keeping their culture intact. Another thing to remember is not to be afraid to talk to people, even if you've never met them before. San Francisco is a really busy city, with people from all over the world, and I'm sure that your friend will be very happy there.
