We came across some amazing promotional videos for Education First, Live the Language. A company that allows you to learn a language in the city where it is natively spoken. With traveling abroad, learning the language of your destination is important. Not only is it easier to communicate with the locals if you need directions around the city, it is also respected, and the people will be delighted that you tried. Languages are easier to learn and retain in a city that forces you to use the language. I learned more Spanish in Barcelona in the 3 months I was there than the 2 years I tried in high school.
These videos are a fun way to learn a couple of words. Check out the cityscapes and culture while learning! I can only wish there were more of these videos!
Interested? Check out the Live the Language website for more videos and information.
Have you stayed in a foreign country to learn a new language? How was the experience? What program did you go through? Or did you do it alone? Any tips for anyone else who might be interested? Please share!
