When I first arrived in London I struggled a lot because everything is completely different from the place where I come from. The people here are a bit unfriendly whereas back at home people are more friendly and open. It was very difficult for me to get used to the English language and food because back at home I don't speak English all the time and the food there is very different from the food here.

The main issue that has changed for me since I arrived in London is my social life. It is really difficult to make friends with people who have nothing in common with you and who come from a totally different background.

I am very much different from my similarly-aged mates here in London. It has been one year and six months living in London and it has been a wonderful experience so far because I've been able to learn and see new things that I never imagined to see. I am still getting used to life here and I have made a few English friends.

All in all I can say that once you get used to London and know your way around, it suddenly becomes a great place and for me I think London is the second best place I have been to. I have learned a lot of new things and I am enjoying myself a lot in London so far.
