You'll have no problem. Already, I can tell you have a better comprehension of the English language than most people here, so you're already ahead of the game.

As a lawyer who is new to the profession, do you know what the term "Avoid New York City like the plague" means? I would set myself up in Boston, and considering what type of law I specialized in, I would move to the appropriate location. We're always in need of lawyers in America my friend!

l won't work America as a lawyer. l only look for a part time job. The job maybe in a bookstore. l like the books. in America l will be a student. l haven't got working permit. l have a tourist visa for ten years. But if l will be a student in America, l can work part time. Have l expressed my situation? Did l use wrong words, sentences? l don't know. But l think you can understand what l want to say.

Your English is a little broken, but I'd say you were about 90% fluent, very legible. Sure, you can come to the U.S. and live just about anywhere. Some places are more expensive than others. We have, technically, entered an economic recession so unemployment is rising but it's not that bad actually. Cities with the largest Turkish populations are Miami, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. I live in Los Angeles. This picture was taken yesterday

Istanbul is no small pond! How old are you and why would you come here? It will be a difficult transition either way.

When I talk to people in, say Croatia at this time of day, they are ready to go to lunch. However, in L. A., it is 2:38 in the morning and I need my beauty rest. I'll check up on you tommorrow, good luck!
