For Spanish speakers learning English: translating 'mudarse de casa'

If you are changing your place of residence, often my Spanish students (and others) learning English with me don’t know what the correct verb is for this strenuous and often stressful event.

Having lived in 7 countries, I actually have changed my home over 40 times so I have a lot of experience with this rather distressing activity. So to translate ‘mudarse’, the best options in UK English would be to use the verb ‘to move house’ or the phrasal verb (I’m sure you love them!) ‘to move out’. So to say ‘voy a mudarme de casa’ we can say ‘I’m going to move house’ or ‘I’m going to move out’. We can also simply employ the verb ‘to move’ but this is more generic and could refer to other actions if it is not obvious that you are talking about changing your domicile.

Feel free to ask any questions about this. Have a great day!

Before taking the time to read the whole of my profile, please take note of three KEY points: 1. My aim is for you to SPEND LESS MONEY and TIME on my classes. My method is about BIG PROGRESS quickly so that you spend the least time possible in lessons. Yes, I want you to buy fewer of my classes because my method is about simplifying English as much as possible so you don´t need many classes. It is about making your life easier and it is about your bank account being in better shape after achieving your English goals. If you choose a cheaper, less experienced coach, much of the time you will need more lessons to achieve the same goal. That means IT WILL COST YOU MORE MONEY in the end and, perhaps more crucially, more of your time. 2. If you are not serious about studying ONLY 10 MINUTES of personalised grammar notes per day, then please look for another teacher! 3. English conversation/comprehension SHOULD BE YOUR PASSION. It should be as fun as a 12 year old playing video games...
