Yes, you are here to learn, to study, and to return to your respective countries boasting perfect pronunciation and conversation skills. You spend long hours hunched over English text books, taking notes in class, or studying in the library. But there is a lot about a language that you just plainly cant learn from a book. One such proven method is by immersing yourself in its culture. Take interest in its art, its history, its habits and taboos. Its holidays.
Languages dont emerge from a vacuum. A language is born from the complex exchange of ideas amongst participants over time, and its words and grammars emerge naturally from the culture to satisfy the communication needs of its speakers. So grab a beer and a seat on a roof, and enjoy the show.
