Right from my childhood I have moved from one metro city to another over India as my father was in airline industry and had to move from one station to another airport. This has made me understand about what is takes to pack your bags and leave everything behind. Things are lot easier when you are moving within the country as you are accustomed to local language, culture and traditions. It will just take few days or weeks to adjust to conditions. But things were completely difficult when I took a major decision to opt for study abroad in USA or UK.I would like to share with you my experience and points which are important to understand if you want to be successful in your mission to get a ticket to foreign land.
One of the golden key to gateway to foreign country is ability to understand, read and write English language. English is universal language and opens up many opportunities for all of us in any field. It is basic requirement when we are applying for any English oriented foreign universities abroad or to when you want to apply for jobs in multinational companies. Most of the visa immigration offices of foreign country require you to give IELTS and TOEFL English proficiency exams to study in their college. I was fortunate that my mother who is English teacher could teach me this language with proficiency but many people fail this exams multiple times and cannot fulfil their dream to study abroad. I think it was more to do with lack of right coaching or mentor with proper guidance to pass the exam.

Second thing before you get ready to pack your suitcase is to adjust to the local climatic conditions and environment. There may be variation in timings and you will suffer from jet lag if you are crossing too many time zones. Proper documentation and physical identity card like passport, driver license etc are must along with their copies to be kept ready with you. Every country has own aspect of culture and religion and you need to abide and respect those at all times. You should remember to continue following your traditions but do not force your belief into local if they are not comfortable with it.You should also explore local sightseeing and places to learn more about the country and mix with local people.
I wish you best of luck for your future!
