we lived in England, we lived in Spain. I learnt how to speak Spanish our stay in Spain. We have been living in England 6 years now. It was hard to adjust to the British lifestyle moving here. Living in England is very different to Spain. We never have family time. Dad works mum is at home and mum works dad is at work. This is because mum works the day and dad works the night.
