Yes they speak Arabic. I was born and raised in the states but my mother and father are from Palestine. I grew up hearing the language and speak it but not to the extent of a native. The dialect is different as well sense they come from different part of the middle east.
Not really. I was so engulfed with my move and tying things up at home in the states that I didn't have time to think about it too much.
At first I went through the honey moon stage and just recently started to feel home sick or "culture shock".
As I said above I know I went through the honey moon stage. I was excited and fascinated to see a new country and culture. But when reality started to settle in and I started to think that I will be here for a while I started to compare my lifestyle. For example the ease with which I came and went, the clean streets and freedom to be just me and not worry about what I am wearing or or how I show emotion towards my husband in public. I find myself missing my home and neighborhood which the don't have here and if they do I haven't seen any, only high rise apartments.......
I started to get more emotional. I am afraid that my sons that are coming in late June will not be happy. This is one of my highways fears. I know myself and bounce in and out of a depression mode which I pray will weaknen. I am definately homesick.
Learning to drive here and remembering and learning where places are. Meeting other Americans or other people for that matter.
Research, research, research! Try to join groups that are expats like you and establish contacts if you can. Good Luck.
