Moving to a new country brings with it, along with the incomparable pleasure of inhabiting a new culture, a fair amount of stumbling blocks along the way. And it’s safe to say that an inability to communicate will only magnify each of these inconveniences.
Learning a culture’s tongue is not only the quickest route to starting to fit in, it’s also one of the most key components to understanding the culture and the people themselves on a deeper level.
Regardless of where you are in the world, there are many uses for Spanish—it’s the official language in 20 countries and the most popular second-language in the US, after all.
But how to go about it? If you’re studying abroad, you’re already on the right track. Immersing yourself in the culture and language will help you to start to pick it up, but you’ll probably want some extra help.
