I definitely would and have given it some thought. Traveling abroad has opened my eyes to the world at large. I think it would be an enriching, life changing experience to be able to live in a foreign country.

    I lived a year in Germany. Living in another country IS a very enriching experience. But as I get older, more rooted by children, economic restraints, obligations, habits, self-imposed philosophical and mental limits... I see that one year as a once-in-a-lifetime venture. Kids, go for it while you can. It definitely doesn't get easier.

    I know french and am pretty accustomed to Europe's strangeness, so I'd be good with any place over their for a short period of time. I do like America a lot, so I could only stay away for maybe a year. I could visit every summer though.

    Grew up in Germany, moved back to America when I was 8. We went to Belgium, Holland, France, Austria, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, and Italy. After Germany, Austria and Italy are my favorite.I may move to Costa Rico as my daughter wants to go and work there. I would encourage any one to go to other countries for prolonged stays as it will give you a better appreciation for America.

    You would need to learn their language, then if it's poor country you would need to get used to working whole day for $5, you would also need to learn their culture, etc... best stay where you are now... That's my advice, take it or leave it... :)

    Oh don't be a stick in the mud, if you are immersed in the language you only need one month and you'll be speaking like a native.
  • Smiji Swampdo... 2012/07/08 20:30:49

    If that were true than all the foreign people in US would be speaking English. I know few people that came to US over 10 years ago and they still don't speak English. So your claim is false, no it is not possible to learn another language in a month. Thank you!
  • Swampdo... Smiji 2012/07/08 20:56:14

    You can learn the rudiments of communication in a month if you are willing, many people here in Florida live in language ghettos, they have many people from their homeland living around them consequently they don't learn the common language. In doing that they limit their economic opportunities and their ability to make money. But you are correct YOU will never learn another language, YOU will never experience the wonderful adventure of learning about another culture, YOU need to learn to read critically, I said," If you are immersed in the language you only need one month." YOU will never know that joy. Apparently YOU are too happy being pessimistic and thinking about the DOWN side of everything. In fact why don't you stay home forever.

    I lived in Canada back in the late 1970s and LOVED it. The people were wonderful and the country is absolutely beautiful. (I've traveled to all but 4 states, lived in 10 states and the District of Columbia, traveled to Europe and Mexico. Things are so much different than they were, then, but if you can travel, do it. ; )
