Imagine leaving your home when you were 16 years old to move to another country where you didn’t speak the language and had to live with a family you had never met before. In addition to being homesick, communication would be an issue because you probably wouldn’t be able to understand what everyone was saying, and they wouldn’t speak your native language.
