Teaching overseas has many benefits and one of the most popular is it gives you the perfect opportunity to learn the native language of the country you are teaching in. Some people choose to simply learn the basics so they can get by comfortably in their new environment, while others choose to go all the way and learn the language to a high level. Whatever your preference, there is no better way to learn than being immersed in the language on a daily basis.
