   Learning a foreign language has been a most trying experience for me, but one that I wouldn’t trade for anything. Not only did learning another language teach me the value of hard work, but it also gave me insights into another culture, and my mind was opened to new ways of seeing things. The most wonderful  result of having learned a foreign language was that I could communicate with many more people than before. Talking with people is one of my favorite activities. So being able to speak a new language lets me meet new people, participate in conversations, and form new, unforgettable friendships. Now that I speak a foreign language, instead of staring into space when English is being spoken, I can participate and make friends. I am able to reach out to others and bridge the gap between my language and culture and theirs.
