After struggling to adapt to a new country, I realized that part of the problem was the fact that I didn't speak the language. I began thinking about what I could do to learn the language, and before I knew it, I was enrolled in an immersion program that focused on teaching only in the language I was learning. Although it was a little intimidating at first, I quickly took a liking to the classes, and started to make some serious progress. After a few weeks, I was speaking better than ever, and I know it is because of the lessons I took. Check out these blog for great advice on learning a new language.
