    Living in Canada really limits the chance to explore other cultures in a *new* way. There are people from all over living here, but you’re always in the safe context of Canada. It’s so expensive to travel overseas… it’s always a little disappointing.

    • Hi Nofoofro. I understand your frustration, but for me, learning a language ultimately means discovering how to make it a part of your life at home, wherever you live. That’s what I’m trying to do now, in London. In Canada, you have so many immigrants, it’s one of the best countries in the world to learn languages! Plus, you can come and meet us at the Montreal Language Festival in August: http://www.langfest.org
