    I'm Chinese (but I go to an English speaking school so yeah), I'll be migrating to England starting from Year 8. Am I gonna fit in? I clearly don't have a British accent and I have no idea what students there are like. I went through some friendship problems last year so I'm just kinda paranoid XD

    *Emigrating, not migrating. And you will be fine, don't worry. Schools in the UK are incredibly multicultural and you will have students from all ethnicities. As much as you will have mean kids, you will have good friends, same as anywhere.

    Don't worry, and don't lose your origins

    It depends. Any number of probabilities are possible. If you know English are are not socially dysfunctional its likely you'll make some friends at the very least. I have seen immigrants who do not know english and stay alone most of the time. But that makes them approachable in a way. It doesn't matter either way in my opinion, but its more than likely you'll make friends.

    Try to take full advantage of diverse cultures present in England. It is an incredibly beautiful country with loads of unique traits. Avoid the risk of completely sticking to your original cultural group (in your case Chinese). Some migrants have been accused of not integrating properly into the English system and this causes problems and unease with the local folk.

    Meet new people and abandon old habits. Be also true to your background and never forget where you are from.

    Good luck.
