i just want to know what you think, if someone moves from one country to another, do you think they should learn to speak their language before or not at all? or even their culture?
Yes, you should have a basic understanding of a culture and language before you move to another country. I realize it's not always possible to speak it well before you move, but a little effort and total immersion can really help you learn the language. You should not move some where and expect that you don't a have to learn their language... it's rude and arrogant!! I would never move to another country and expect they are going to cater to me.

Well, my mom didn't speak a lick of English when she moved here 35 years ago from Argentina. She now speaks fluently & is an American Citizen. I think with the right attitude, it doesn't matter. She moved here, learned the language, got a good job, married a good fellow & is super proud to be able to call herself American now that she is a citezen.
But, not everyone moves here with the great attitude she had. Some people move here, take advantage of what we have to offer & then leave. My mother loves America more than the country she came from. She consideres herself an American, not an Argentinian.
