Living in a country where you have to speak a foreign language can cause serious social problems, as well as practical problems. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?

Residing in a country where one has to communicate in a foreign
language
comes with some challenges. Because of the need to speak
such
language often,

language, often
there can be some practical, as well as social problems. I strongly agree with
this
assertion and
this
essay will elucidate on
this
.
To begin
, due to the necessity of conversation in a non native
language
, there may be some serious problems with socialization.
Firstly
, building and sustaining relationships,
such
as, business, friendship and marriage can be very challenging.

, did not lead to marriage, as observed by a magazine recently.
Secondly
, it is difficult to relax well. One may be discouraged to attend social functions. A good

Furthermore
, practical problems can be experienced; it may be difficult to secure some appointment, as jobs,
such
as, public relation officer (PRO), where one has to speak mainly local
language
, will not be available to foreigners. A good
example
is the stiff competition for

In addition
, education can pose some challenges. As teaching is done in the foreign
language
, most students will find it difficult to comprehend.
For
example
,

year undergraduates of a German school had to study German for a year. Working and studying difficulties can

accompany living in a country different from ones own. In conclusion,
although
living in a foreign country comes with some benefits, there can
also
be some serious problems socially and practically. I strongly opine that
this
is usually the case. Government,
therefore should
