First of all, this book is intended for emigrants who are only going to move to the US or are already in this country for a while. It does not address the legal issues of emigration, since there is enough information on this topic, but the process of adapting immigrants to a new life is still their own concern or, as I.
Ilf and E. Petrov, "The salvation of drowning people is the work of the drowning themselves."
The second group for which this book will be most useful are people who come to the country on official business for a more or less significant period and therefore face many issues of everyday life in America. The third group includes an increasing number of foreign students receiving education in US educational institutions. Expanded knowledge of their life, of course, will facilitate the action of the "cultural shock" experienced by all who have recently arrived in the country and will make it possible to use their forces more efficiently. The chapter on education, being the most extensive, allows you to get a detailed idea of the US education system, the process of entering higher education institutions and the distinctive features of learning in them. This book can also be useful to people who do not know Russian, but relate to the three groups mentioned above. As far as I know, books in English devoted to these issues are very rare, besides, none of them covers all issues vital for new residents in such detail. Why did you decide to write this book.
The idea of writing this book appeared long before I arrived in the United States, when the question arose about the possibility of emigration in our family, and we began with keen interest to read everything that was possible about this country. Then I was surprised to find that there is practically no real information about real life in the USA and the process of adapting emigrants to life in this country. I remember the only article in the former journal Technics and Science, in which the author told how he came to the US for the first time in his life and described all his actions from the moment he entered to the exit. Then he described a meeting with a former Soviet electronics engineer who had by then lived in the country for about 10 years. The author in a rather short article described in detail about his housing conditions, income, working biography from the moment of his arrival,
And at the time of the conversation with the author, Boris (so his name, if I'm not mistaken) worked as someone like the chief of the design bureau. This article has given us more than everything read so far and has given us confidence that we too can succeed. Then I decided, having come to the USA, to collect all possible concrete information about that new and unfamiliar, with which every newcomer always meets, and write this book. Tell me more about its contents. The content of this book reflects almost all aspects of life faced by any new citizen of the country, set out in a logical order and described by a person who has gone through all stages of adaptation, paying attention to his problems and problems that others face. The book details issues such as renting a house and buying a car, banking and credit history, job search and promotion, paying taxes, the income of people of various professions and the structure of the expenses of the American family, the processes of entering and studying in colleges and universities, social security system and pension system, insurance and medical care, assistance for the elderly and disabled, buying and selling housing and much more. I know that for many women who come abroad, ignorance of English becomes a big problem not only in communicating with her foreign husband, but also hampers the process of adaptation to new conditions.
Most of them go to courses in English as a second language. And your book? How does it help in learning the language.
The book is published in a bilingual version and is intended both for people who do not have any knowledge of the English language, and for those who know it fluently. People who do not speak English can read this book in their native language. Readers who have some training in English can easily find a match for the Russian text in its English version, and those who are fluent in English can read only the English version, learning what they need and simultaneously practicing in fluent reading. When meeting with unfamiliar words, they can easily find their translation in the Russian version of the text on the next page.
This book allows you to remove stress by giving newcomers the necessary information in their native language and, at the same time, helping them with learning English, providing the convenience of translated text that eliminates the need for laborious search for unfamiliar words in the dictionary. Now let's talk about housing. In general, a woman who married an American usually comes to everything ready. The husband takes an apartment or he has a house. What can interest her in the section of your book on housing.
Americans often change their place of residence and, if the husband rented an apartment or had a house that corresponded to his bachelor way of life, it is likely that after some time after the marriage, you will need to change the habitation. A woman should have an understanding of all aspects of the housing market, since not all Americans are practical in life affairs. I think that the topic of cars and roads will also be of interest to our readers. In your opinion, what first of all should pay attention to a woman, first sitting behind the wheel of the car. Violations of traffic rules in the United States are expensive.
The worst variant of punishment is deprivation of a driving license for this or that period, because without them a person loses freedom of movement and becomes dependent on others. Most often, if you violate the rules, you will not be stopped by a policeman on foot, but by a patrol car with flashing lights. This in itself is quite unpleasant for any person, and for someone who does not know the language well and is recently in the country - worse many times.
It is very easy to succumb to panic and start behaving the way you would behave in your country. Do not do this at all. The book provides recommendations on how to behave in such situations. There are several sections devoted to the topic of money.
And it is right. Money is the way to independence. Many people may think that a woman whose husband earns the lion's share for the family budget does not need to know how to use the loan, pay taxes and how to earn a pension. But this is a big mistake! I hope that with the help of your book many Russian women and their American husbands will get rid of this error. Americans are not asked to ask about income.
This is a more personal matter than even age or health. In some families, family members do not always know what exactly is the income of the head of the family. Husband and wife can have separate bank accounts and file a separate tax return, dividing the joint expenses in half. The financial side of life in America is much more complicated than in many other countries.
Many families live from wages to salaries and, even with very high incomes, are heavily in debt. Annually about 1. 5 million people suffer bankruptcy.
Orient in money and have a good credit history is absolutely necessary, regardless of who is the "bread-winner" in the family, and even more so for a woman who is not sure of her future. Career is also a very important stage in the life of a woman starting to settle in a new country. As you think, with the help of your book you can facilitate the process of getting an education and finding a job. The labor market in the United States is large and diverse, but it has its own characteristics that may not be familiar to people who have recently arrived in the country. One of the features is dynamism. People quite often change their place of work, and even their place of residence, seeking to find what is best for them. Many learn in their spare time to move up the social ladder.
In this regard, the turnover rate in many mass professions is very high. This is not surprising or depressing, society has just adapted to this. Technologies have been developed that allow people to work without people who have no qualifications or after minimal training. This means that with a poor knowledge of English or even without it one can find a job that does not require qualification, but it will be difficult to replace it with something better.
You need to learn, and you can do it at any age. The chapters on work and education are the most extensive and cover all of their most important aspects. What in your book might interest moms. Even if your child quickly learns English and it seems that he adapts to life in America fairly easily, he faces problems that are as real and serious as yours, and perhaps even more serious ones.
Many people believe that those who come to another country between the ages of 14 and 18 do so at the best possible age. Since they have mastered their native language and remember a lot about life in their home country, they do not risk losing their language and culture completely, but at the same time they are young enough to perfectly learn English and become "real" Americans, which can be impossible for their parents, grandparents, and even older brothers and sisters. Although there may be some truth in this, it is also true that in many respects, it is more difficult for adolescents to adapt to a new culture than for those who are older or younger. What else would you like to draw the attention of future readers of your book. The possibility of emigration to America - the richest and most powerful country - is rightly perceived as a blessing and in some causes unrealistic expectations and a false sense of guaranteed well-being without the need to make great efforts.
It would be a big mistake to think so. Emigration was, is and will always be a serious test. Very often these are psychological difficulties, which are based on differences in cultures and ignorance of English. However, if you come on a legal basis and are ready for the difficulties that await you; if you aspire to become independent as soon as possible and do not expect anything undeserved; if you are able to understand and accept a new culture that can significantly differ from your own - welcome to America.
