Living abroad helps to develop the qualities needed to succeed in life and at work. In our time, if you have enough money you can easily organize a week-long holiday abroad. A couple of clicks and you can book a room online as well as various excursions around the city. During such a trip you will probably visit several local attractions, eat at popular restaurants and do some shopping. But a short trip like this won’t allow you to really get to know the local culture and to get out of your comfort zone. To do this, you need to live in another country for some time.
If you live abroad for some time, you will improve the knowledge of a foreign language. This is perhaps the most obvious advantage of living abroad. Being constantly surrounded by foreigners, you will have to communicate in a foreign language on a daily basis. Do not forget about TV shows, movies, books and magazines. The biggest advantage of the language learning is that your knowledge will go far beyond what you were taught in school and university. You’ll hear live speech of locals rather than a cassette tape on which speakers sound unnatural.
You will discover a new cuisine. You’ll try dishes you never knew existed. Once you return home, you will miss foreign dishes, because it will be difficult for you to cook them without the necessary ingredients. In any case, you’ll greatly enrich your culinary skills and will be able to diversify your menu.
You will become more responsive. By communicating daily with the locals, you’ll realize that you actually have with them a lot more in common than you thought. You’ll stop to think with stereotypes and learn to perceive foreigners as the ordinary people and understand their feelings and beliefs.
You will learn a lot about your own country. For residents of the country you move in, you’re a foreigner. Be prepared for the fact that you’ll be asked a lot of question about your country. Some questions will be good-natured, while others may offend you or make feel you uncomfortable. However, it is not necessary to be hostile. These questions can open your eyes to how other people see your country.
You will be able to develop leadership skills and learn how to work in a team. Such skill will be very useful applying for a job
Spend some time abroad and these skills will be developed naturally. You will learn to solve everyday problems in an unfamiliar environment, will no longer be afraid of difficulties, learn to take risks, will strive for knowledge and will be happy to share it with anyone who needs it. These qualities make you an indispensable employee and will help to achieve success in any field.
