2 Creating your community

Luckily, we live in the age of the internet. The internet has facilitated the rise of endless groups and communities that can help you become more successful in your language learning.

However, it’s not all online. Through its ability to connect people, the internet has made it much easier for language enthusiasts to organise offline meetups, in the true spirit of language learning.

Wherever you live, whatever hours you work, however you like to interact with people, there are now no excuses not to surround yourself with other who can keep you motivated, answer your questions, and even get speaking practice in the language you’re learning.
