moving to another country


moving to another country
dear teachers, one of my students is moving to the USA and we have a month to prepare her for living there. Her English is not bad, she makes some mistakes, but her speech is understandable and i don īt think she īll have big problems there, actually. But during that month i īd like to give her really useful things for her new life in another country. If you have any suggestions or any links which i can use for her, i īd be very grateful for your help.

Make sure she knows that in America you call it an "eraser", not a "rubber".
I watched a show in Germany about a German family that moved to Texas.  The teenage girl told a story about a very embarassing moment when she asked someone for a "rubber" (she wanted the thing you erase pencil marks with).  In America a "rubber" is a prophylactic (condom)--it was very embarassing for her.
