This study examines the experience of children who have recently migrated to a cultural and language different country. The focus is on the voice of the children regarding this experience. The children were developing a bi-cultural identity for both their country of origin and their new country. The experience is not a negative one as first thought. The students are not living on Mars but living in a new place of experiences and potential for the future.
