All people develop skills to survive in their particular physical, social and cultural environments. Once a person migrates to another place, however, some of these skills become entirely obsolete. The person that is confronted with a new environment is often expected to enter an endless learning process, which leads to the feeling of constantly falling behind. iFAQs seeks to shift the commonly accepted roles by asking simple questions to newcomers: What are you good at?
