Language Learning and Quiet Destinations

It’s been a quietish week over on ExpatFocus as both the editor and community manager have been away. The editor – that’s me – got stuck in a house in the middle of nowhere in Scotland with limited wifi, and then on a train with no wifi at all. Which in 2015 feels a bit like being stuck without air.

But we’ll be back in full force from next week, and in the meantime we did still manage to publish some posts for you. If you have any ideas for future articles you’d like to see on ExpatFocus, let me know on scar@expatfocus.comDo you like the idea of moving abroad but don’t want to live in a big city? Take a look at our list of ten quieter destinations for expats around the world.

I’ve been experimenting with Duolingo as a language-learning app recently, and I like it so far. But apps aren’t for everyone, and while they’re a good starting point, they often need to be supplemented with some more intense training if you want to learn a language properly. Take a look at our language learning hacks for inspiration.

Speaking of languages: if you’re thinking about teaching English abroad, take a look at our list of the top ten places to be an English teacher.

We only had one Expat Experience this week: Julie in London, UK.
