Task 2: 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.

Some people who decided to live in a foreign language face a wide range of problems, and many of them stem from the language barrier, which prevents them from properly integrate into society, as well as making daily life more difficult. I partly agree with this since modern technology has made practical issues less relevant over the last several decades.

Firstly, with the rapid development of technology and society, smartphones and their apps have eliminated numerous traditional communications. For example, Google Translate is a freely available online translation tool by which almost all people can express their ideas in any language even without learning a single vocabulary. Likewise, maps and online shopping programs have eliminated to need to ask for directions and negotiate in the foreign language entirely, making it easy to negative in the foreign city or buy essentials.

Secondly, another possible reason that having to speak a foreign language can cause social issues since the difference in understanding between people of different cultures. For instance, the United States where has been an influx of Hispanic immigrants, especially along the Southern border. These immigrants can usually fit in well if they learn English, but those that have not learned to have provoked social problems and even violent reactions. Many English-speaking residents resent immigrants for not integrating and this had led to widespread discriminatory and racist practices against Hispanics. This, in turn, has caused many Hispanics to develop an aversion to other residents and isolate themselves in homogeneous neighborhoods.

To sum up, I partly agree with the statement on the given topic, not knowing a language while living abroad can cause social unrest but pragmatic concerns have been mitigated thanks to recent technology.
