Three Benefits of Making Friends Abroad

Sharing is caring!

1. Networking

What do we mean by networking? The more international friends you make, the more places around the globe you’ll have chances in. For example, let’s say you know, a Brazilian, a Saudi, a German, a Korean and a Russian! Now you have networks in five different countries! That means if you’re ever looking for business opportunities, or job vacancies, or simple vacation, you now know enough people to help you and direct you to where you find the best jobs or opportunities in these five countries. Now imagine you know more than just one, from many different regions and provinces or even counties, imagine the network and references you’ll have! That’s one of the best things we offer at our language school!

2. Traveling for less

Let’s say you’re happy where you are, and are comfortable with your job or business. Let’s say your country offers you the best opportunities for you, and you’re not thinking of relocating. However, you would still want to travel the world and see as much as you can! Who wouldn’t want to see all the countries in the world? If you made friends in as many countries as you can, those friends can help you find the cheapest but best places to visit. They will offer you help one where to go and where not to go. They will know the local cool places that are not crowded with tourists, providing a unique culture experience! Sometimes, they will offer you a place to stay for FREE! Because they’re the awesome local friend!

3. Learning new languages

We all know that practice make perfect, and the best practice is with your native speaker buddy! If you want to learn a new language, English or German, Russian, or Japanese… etc, the best way to do it, and practice your language authentically is through making friends with native speakers! They will be teaching you and practice with you the local everyday life language. You can basically learn all the languages you wish you spoke! Just get to know a native speaker!
