Why you should learn the local language when moving to a new country

Migration and the Importance of Language Lessons

Are you thinking of moving to a new country? Or looking for new opportunities abroad? It is an exciting idea; however, people often make the decision to move abroad without giving language training a second thought.

Generally speaking, it should be easy enough to find a job abroad when you speak English; however, learning the local language has advantages that you will never benefit from by not fully integrating yourself into the local culture. A few of these are listed below:

  1. Relating to your colleagues… So, you found your dream job abroad, English is all you need, or so they said in the application… When you get there, you realise that not everyone in your office speaks or understands English very well. Meetings are often held in the local language and you find it hard to participate and relate to your colleagues.
  2. Making friends and integrating into the new community is essential for your new life. It is easy to mingle with expats like yourself, but in order to get the most from your foreign experience, you should be learning as much as possible about your new country and culture, this will allow you to fully enjoy your time abroad and learn and participate as much as possible in your new home country.
  3. You may be safe in your workplace and get by just fine in English, but what happens when you try to do the shopping, travel by public transport or even talk to your kids’ school teacher? Learning the new language up to an intermediate level will help you get through these essential tasks in your daily life.
