As a non-native English speaker, you may want to learn the language as quickly as possible. You want to gain proficiency in it so you can better take part in society and apply for and secure better employment. However, you might want to avoid having to learn the language entirely on your own. You can instead enroll in and take part in group ESL classes to become a proficient speaker of the English language.
You can tell a lot about a person's culture by listening to them speak. First of all, the language they speak will tell you a lot about where they are from. The words they choose to say may give you details such as whether their culture is focused on art, how they value others, and what topics they tend to speak about with strangers. Sometimes, it is good to set aside your own bias and just listen to people from other cultures and traditions speak. We enjoy doing that, and we also enjoy writing about language and culture on this blog.
