How can we ask to people who moved to new neigherborhood/city/country or who started working a new job at a company or who started going new school if they feel comfort with it/ if they managed to adjust themselves in this new culture. How can we ask that in casual way?

  • Thanks for answers.Do "Were you able to adjust yourself to your new job" and "How are you getting on at new school/job" sound natural? – Mrt Jan 13 '15 at 21:15
  • To my AmEnglish ear, "Were you able to adjust yourself" implies that there was something wrong or difficult about the process. "settling in" or "getting on" doesn't have that connotation for me. – mkennedy Jan 13 '15 at 22:20
  • "getting on" sounds distincly like BrE (to my AmE ear.) – Brian Hitchcock Jan 13 '15 at 23:24
  • You can also use the word "acclimate", example: "Have you gotten acclimated yet?" – Kai Jan 14 '15 at 0:42

I believe the phrase that you're looking for, Murat, is "How are you settling in?"

Here's a link to the phrase "settle in" at Dictionary.com so you can further explore the topic, if needed.


There are a number of idiomatic phrases for this. I would say:

How are you getting along with your new job/school?
How is your new job/school working out?
