What are the pros and cons of living in the city or countryside?

I wag grown in countryside until 18 years old, I have been living in the city. So I know each pros and cons in both sides. Those who have been grown in the city have difficulties to live in the countryside due to the lack of entertainment and troublesome relationship among people.

自然な表現

I was born and raised in the countryside until 18 years old when I moved to the city. As a result, I know the pros and cons of both sides. Those who have been raised in the city have difficulties living in the countryside due to the lack of entertainment and troublesome relationship among people.

1. I think this is a typing error.
2. This is how we express this.
3. This is a specific type of place.
4. This indicates when u moved to the city.
5. Avoid starting a sentence with a conjunction.
6. These are specific to each location.
7. Use this to indicate reference.
8. We use grown when talking about how a child/children have developed.
9. Use the gerund here to describe an action.
What about the people who grew up in the countryside? What difficulties do they face when they move to the city?

Those who live in the countryside have almost been the resident there since their ancestors. They inherit houses and property from their ancestors, so they don't built their house on their own. They don't have any difficulties to live in the city. Once they get used to the city life filled with stimulations, they seem to enjoy their life in the city.

They don't have any difficulties living in the city. Once they get used to the city life filled with stimulations, they seem to enjoy their life in the city.

1. Use the verb to mean 'lived'.
2. Use the simple present as this is a general routine action.
3. Speak in general terms.
4. Use this to indicate a specific reference.
5. Use this to indicate the action.
I agree with you. I grew up in the countryside but have lived in the city half of my life. While, I prefer the simplicity of life back home, it already feels foreign to me.

As is the same with you, I have spent half of my life in the city. My wife has been living in the city through her life. I'm going to return to my hometown in the countryside, she won't accept my offer, though. She seems to be challenging to live in the countrysides around strong relationship with neighborhoods. She also doesn't drive a car, it is necessary to live in the countryside, though.

As is the same with you, I have spent half of my life in the city. My wife has been living in the city throughout her life. I'm going to return to my hometown in the countryside, she won't accept my offer, though. She seems to think that it is challenging to maintain relationships with neighbors in the countryside. She also doesn't drive a car, it is necessary to live in the countryside, though.

1. Use this to mean "her whole life".
2. I think this is what you wanted to say.
Yes, we do have to get along well with neighbors. In the city, neighbors don't even know each other. When you run into them somewhere, you just smile at them. You don't have to forge a relationship with them. However, I find neighbors in the city insensitive. What about you?

My neighborhoods in the city are likely to have a appropriate distance. Almost all my neighborhoods are kind and polite, some are insensitive, though. There are some detail rules in the neighborhood area, someone doesn't follow them and become a troublesome matters.

My neighbors in the city are likely to keep a distance. Almost all my neighbors are kind and polite, some are insensitive, though. There are some detailed rules in the neighborhood   and if someone doesn't follow them it becomes a troublesome matter.

1/3. 'neighborhood' is a community, here you are talking about the people who live next to you.
2. This is better to say meaning to stay away from someone.
4. Use this to indicate having detail.
5. This becomes unnecessary.
6. Use this to talk about a certain scenario.
7. You are referring to what happens in the case. Use the third person because the subject is singular.
8. The subject is singular.
It's high time we have the same policies applied here. I'm particulary sensitive with noise as it always messes up with my sleep. In Japan, you don't have any problem with noise. Is that right?

No, we have some problems with noise. A few years ago, my neighbor often listened music loudly in midnight. They lived in a house whose lender was close to my house. The lender terminated the contract with them and they went out soon. There seem to be a risk of noise or other troublesome issues with neighborhoods.

1. 'to' is a collocation of 'listen'.
