Study and live abroad, immerse yourself in the culture and life.

Portuguese has been an integral part of my everyday personal life since I first started studying it.

Learning languages has enriched my life in many ways, and has has enabled me to communicate with people with whom I would otherwise not be able to communicate. 

Living and working abroad opened my eyes to the world in ways I didn't know possible.

Through language study, I have been lucky enough to travel, live and study in-region and forge strong friendships. A strong command of Spanish and Portuguese has also set me apart professionally in a job market where international experience and expertise are increasingly sought-after attributes.

Being able to travel to and live in a foreign country without having to rely on English is a very proud and empowering experience.

It's an amazing feeling to adapt to a culture halfway across the world and experience life as a local.

Try to do a little bit each day and study abroad. If you become fluent, it will help you more than you know.

Learning German and Mandarin has given me the opportunity to travel the world, to meet new people, to try foods that have way too many legs, and to become horribly lost in foreign cities yet know that I will somehow be able to find my way home.

You never know where your language will lead you.
