Moving to the States 来到美国
About this lesson
I’m thinking of moving
I’m thinking of moving to the States within the next 6 months.
People say the West Coast is nice, where do you wanna end up?
I actually have some family in Virginia so I might like the East Coast better.
You’d like it there
If you like big cities I hear New York is the best.
I love Broadway musicals so I think I’d like living there.
If I were moving to America I think I’d try for the South.
You’d like it there because the people are really friendly.
My job situation
Of course it’ll all depend on my job situation.
I hear the American government is buckling down on pollution.
I hope my company doesn’t relocate because I really like city life.
I think your company will stay put.
I hope I can provide better for my family in the US.
Do you think the standard of living there is a lot better?
I think there’s a lot of opportunity over there to get ahead.
It’s hard work starting from scratch in a new country.
I wanna try to get settled before my daughter is old enough to start school.
It’ll be hard for her to leave her friends here if she’s just started school.
It wouldn’t be good to move her around so much.
It’ll be better to find a house near a good school and stay put.
Give me an edge
I already have some connections so I hope that’ll give me an edge.
I can always work in the store that my uncle owns if this job doesn’t work out.
That’s great that you have another plan to fall back on.
I’m hoping everything will fall into place once I get there.
