What problems or difficulties do you think you may have in Britain/Canada/Australia?
I will probably have some trouble with English at first. I heard that once you get used to using
English all the time, it gets a lot easier to pick it up. I suppose I’ll also need to learn how to do things in Canada. For example , I won’t know how to buy a subway ticket and use the transport

face these troubles when one first arrives.
