Many people have learned a foreign language in their own country; others have learned a foreign language in the country in it is spoken. Which is better? Give the advantages of each and support your viewpoint.
Although it is the most expensive way. However, the best and the fast way to learn a foreign language is in the country it is spoken.
As we all know, to learn a foreign language properly is not easy. It is required a lot of effort and practice from people who are learning.
Being abroad to learn a foreign language have a lot of advantages. Besides attending regular language classes, people would have an opportunity to practice what they have learned in class by interacting with locals.
By being abroad, people are forced to communicate with locals for the most simple task. For example: By asking for an information, to order a plate in a restaurant and so on.
By listening the way how locals speak, people would be able to improve their accent and by the time they would get used by listening to the way how natives speak and the way how they express themselves. Therefore, people would pick the new language faster which would be an important step for the speaking part.
Besides learning a foreign language, being abroad, people would have an opportunity to learn and understand the locals culture, the way how people live, their food which would be a good way to broad their minds.
On the other hand, to learn a new language in their own country could be a cheapest way. However, people would not be forced to speaking and listening the foreign language all the time. Therefore, the learning process would be slowly and the opportunity to interact with native speakers would be non-existent.
To summing up, to learn a new language is a hard and long process which require a massive effort. Being in a country in it is spoken, people would be exposed to the new language all the time by listening, speaking and interacting with the locals and for me it is the best way so far to learn a foreign language.
