Interview Answer

1 Answer


I spent a month abroad in a different country where I did not speak the local language. This was difficult because I had never faced a similar situation. Whenever I needed something or if someone came up to me I was unable to understand or speak the language. So, I began to ask a lot of questions and tried to speak basic sentences whenever possible to familiarize myself. I also researched the local culture. All of this helped me to have a better experience abroad and to fully immerse myself in another culture besides my own.
