Step 7. Learn the language if you haven’t already.
Throughout the UK, English is the primary spoken language. If you’re not fluent, you can use apps like Babbel or Duolingo to get started. Even if you are a native English speaker, you may struggle to understand the accent. In this case, the best way to learn is by immersion.
Step 8: Don’t be lonely – make friends and connect with other ex-pats in the UK.
One of the easiest ways to feel at home is to meet friends from your country. Finding other ex-pats in the UK is easy – there are hundreds of groups on Meetup and Facebook to help you make friends.
Step 9: Find out the UK emergency numbers
You never know when you’ll need help – ask for UK emergency numbers before you arrive to be on the safe side.
