    Default Interview Translation

    Greetings all, I am trying to put together some general questions for an ESOL class and could use some help translating them to spanish. The questions are as follows:

    Where were you born?
    What was life like in your country of origin?
    Why did you move to the United States?
    What do you like about living in Seattle and the United States?
    What do you find difficult about living here?
    What are some differences between your home country and the U.S.?
    What are some similarities?
    What hopes and plans do you have for the future?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time!

    The students are from Mexico. But they are from various regions, so I can't say which specific dialect. I suppoese just very "general" Spanish (I hope that helps). The questions can be informal as we are have worked together for a while in a very relaxed environment. Thanks so much.

    Actually it would probably be better to use formal language, just to stay on the respectful side. Thanks again.

    Hi. If you want formal language, this is my approach:

    ¿Dónde nació?
    ¿Cómo era la vida en su país de origen?
    ¿Porqué se vino a vivir/mudó a Estados Unidos?
    ¿Qué le gusta de vivir en Seattle y en Estados Unidos?

    ¿Qué encuentra difícil de vivir aquí?
    ¿Cuáles son algunas diferencias entre su país natal y Estados Unidos?
    ¿Cuáles son algunas similitudes?
    ¿Qué expectativas y planes tiene para el futuro?




    Hope that helps.
    Regards.
