Chelsea striker Falcao has praised his new team-mates ahead of Saturday's Premier League opener against Swansea City.
The 29-year-old could be in the starting line-up to face Garry Monk's men after striker Diego Costa failed to recover from a hamstring injury.
He struggled to cope with the physicality of English football last season but is now eager to improve on his disappointing goalscoring record in the domestic league.
"The atmosphere in the squad here is very good, they are very friendly with me and everybody gave me a big welcome," Falcao told the club's official website.
"It helped to go away on tour with my new team-mates and since we returned to London we haven't had a lot of free days, but some players have been helping me to get to know the city and helping me to look at houses so I am grateful to them for their help.
"It's [the Premier League] a lot more physical here than anywhere else in Europe.
"Maybe the football philosophy is a little different here in that it is always about getting the ball forward and there is less time when teams are just trying to control the ball and take the heat out of the game.
"Once you get to know your team-mates, you all know when it is the right time to put your foot on the ball and take the heat out of the game and when it is the right time to go forward, all out."
