I am a Chinese from Chengdu capital in the Southwestern parts of Sichuan province. Moving to America to pursue my education has created cultural and social differences starting from the cuisines to language. Even with the early civilization in my region, our mode of communication is still the Yi language. It really was a big challenge having to adapt to the fast English speaking peers and tutors that I was surrounded by. By engrossing in books, constant interactions with peers, watching different movies and hiring an interpreter that helped me interpret most English terms that are used by those around me, I have fully adapted to the language as it’s the general mode of communication (Makore 2007).
