I want to study abroad but i am afraid from the language challenge i want some advices for this matter.

i want some advices for this matter.

  • I have traveled to many countries. Without exception I have found that if you take some time and LEARN about the customs and culture of that country and then TRY to communicate with the people you find there in a civil manner you will almost certain find people willing to help you with the language. My advice: go for it. Most likely you will learn a lot and have a great time.

  • It's a good idea to have friends who live there, or have a group study abroad with you; so even if you get confused over the language barriers, you'll have your mates with you.
    Study the language at least a little bit. Learn important words/phrases like "Hello", "I don't speak X", "Where is the restroom", etc.
    Have the Google Translate app with you. You can not only manually type in foreign words to translate, but use Lens and take pictures of signs/maps/etc. for better understanding, even if the translation isn't perfect.

  • There's nothing like living somewhere to help you learn the language. Also try to get some media exposure in the local language before - it's so easy now online to watch some local TV or read the local paper.

  • Many years ago, I had a "Learn Chinese" CD that actually would allow me to speak the phrase/word and get a feedback score for how close I got to the correct tone and pronunciation!  Finding that kind of software would be great way to tart, before you  do some immersive methods.

    1. Developing a plan can be helpful, but it's also important to remain flexible and adaptable.
  • Studying abroad can be a wonderful and enriching experience, but it's understandable to feel anxious about the language challenge.

  • Great advice! I've been wondering the same so I'm glad for this reply.

  • I am an English teacher. Please start with listening to TV and radio and use you tube if it is available in your country.
