Living in a country where you have to speak a foreign language can cause serious social problems, as well as practical problems. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?


--


Expatriates who cannot use the local language might face a wide range of issues that come from social life and daily activities. I totally agree that the language barrier can be a big problem when living in a foreign country.

Language is one of the most effective tools to express thoughts to other people. Because of that, failure to achieve adequate proficiency in the host country’s language, a developed country specifically, can let foreigners be underestimated at workplaces. In another aspect, using inappropriate words or talking at a noticeably slow speed might be some reasons that cause them to be losers in transferring their ideas. Hence, the door to be involved in conversations and increase social integration with local friends would be narrower. Many disadvantages happen when expatriates have not been able to improve language acquisition might be one source that produces their negative feelings like loneliness, stress, depression and discrimination as a result.


Besides some big problems as above, people living far from their homelands like international students, foreign workers, or refugees can also struggle from everyday living. With great support from popular applications like Google Maps or Google Translate, part of nonnatives makes their day-to-day tasks such as getting directions, going shopping less difficult. However, they cannot rely on those programs entirely if their mother tongue languages have not been supported or there is no internet connection.


In conclusion, the acquisition of the host country’s language is crucial to foreigners when they do not want to face many issues that lead to failed integration. Being able to use the local language will increase social interaction with native-born people and prevent daily activities from becoming daunting tasks.

Thank you a lot. I also wonder if I can use some personal experience when I give an example in the essay? I was lost in Korea once because I couldn't manage to figure out the directions of some buses. Their bus system didn't translate all Korean words into Latin so I couldn't understand them when I was in a rush.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

Yes. Personal experiences often are excellent additions to an essay if you are arguing your opinion.

Do you speak Latin? Very few people learn Latin these days.

Oh I mean Latin alphabet. If they showed Hwangsan-ro then I would know that was a stop on Hwangsan street. But they didn't translate all the stops then I got confused.

I understand. I had a wonderful trip to Japan many years ago, and took lessons in Japanese for about six months before my trip. I could understand and speak just a little bit, but was completely flummoxed by maps and street signs. This trip was long before cell phones and google maps existed.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Interesting. I'm sure it's must easier now with the assistance of Google Maps and some local maps apps. Have you ever been to Vietnam? We use Latin alphabet, but with tones Emotion: stick out tongue

The lack of technical crutches made it easier to for the locals to feel for my predicament and pause in their daily activity and try to exercise the English they learned in school. I also got to use my primitive smattering of Japanese. It was really fun.

They would not be so eager to assist if I was just staring at a cell phone screen. Japanese are not really outgoing to foreigners.

I have travelled many places in the world, but never have been to Vietnam, Laos or Cambodia. I have Vietnamese friends, though and we have a little Saigon area of the city which has Vietnamese restaurants and stores.
