    Pretty hard to define what makes an american an american...

    But I'd say the really essence of it is a love of freedom and good english skills. Accents does not really matter. Our founding fathers probably had a british accent and nobody bothered them wink

    Being an American is about having basic freedoms which don't intrude upon the lives of others. Not that its always that way because often times it isn't.

    But its an American dream to pursue your dreams as long as it does not oppress others.

    I'm sorry, but I'd have to disagree with everybody who answered with "freedom". America has more opportunity than freedom. I've been traveling for about a year now out of the United States and I've been living in Thailand for half of that.

    I think the main thing they will need is a good grasp of how to speak English. Then I think they'd be more comfortable in cities like Los Angeles or New York which are both very ethnically diverse cities.

    Any person who goes to any country should know at least some things about the language of the people in that country.No need at all to be skilled in the accent, and driving vehicles is not something peculiar to specific nation or people.Remember also that any person in this earth is proud of his country of origin even if he is granted another nationality, and he can not at all cut his roots in order to be another person,even if he wishes.

    Put your heart in or get your ass out..............seems pretty straightforward and simple to me.

    Stop telling me, how great this place is, that you ran from!  Stop asking ME to pay homage to your mother country.  Stop asking ME to "celebrate" her, or speak  her language, eat her food, or recoginize her  holidays and customes.

    Please..........stop telling me, that MY children have to learn to respect your old came here by choice, respect US.

    i would suggest that they should understand that they are in a diferent country and should happily follow the way, americans behave and celebrate festive occasions and participate in them and speak english fluently and comfortably. its also about the greetings formal and informal way and be considerate and soft when meeting anybody at store.
    americans are friendly and try to adjust with them and learn their way of loving life and enjoying it.
