There are two ways to go from A to B (and vice versa) : A being where you are today and B being where you want to be regarding your level of acceptance in a different community. Either you get there taking the way through the cultural barriers or you take the time to find another way that looks more promising and enjoyable.
If you feel that no matter what, you need to go the hard way and face those one day or another, I would say go ahead, you are correct ! But do not undertake the journey on your own. Breaking barriers is an impossible task. When facing them, you can only do your share in a concerted attempt to set them aside. You need to co-operate to find common ground between the two. It may start with learning the language and being exposed to B’s culture, but you can only claim acceptance when superiority and inferiority comparisons are completely eliminated.
At Language Fellows, we want to be part of your journey. We believe, you will enjoy it and we guarantee that you will be able to communicate and have meaningful conversations. By joining our learning community, you take a step towards eliminating prejudice by experiencing different cultures.
Our Spanish and French communities are open to all, but some features are only available to active students. The purpose of the community is dual. On the one hand, it is a forum to share with other people about your linguistic and cultural experiences and on the other one, it is a blog where meaningful information, articles, and links are posted.
