I've got an assignment to finish ASAP, and I really need some help.
Quick answer:The arrival in Nebraska of Jim Burden and Antonia Shimerda is different in a number of ways. First, compared to Antonia, Jim has come a relatively short distance. Jim has come to Nebraska from his childhood home in Virginia, half a continent away, while Antonia is an immigrant to the country, having come from Bohemia, a country in Europe, near Czechoslovakia on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Second, Jim has no problem communicating with the people in his new environment but because of the differences in their countries of origin, Antonia and her family are isloated in their new home by language.
