Traditionally, serious language learners would need to live in a foreign country for several months or even several years, in order to dive in and submerge into the other culture. I believe there is a much more convenient way for those like me, who live in Toronto, Canada.
Toronto is one of the few places in the world that truly embrace multiculturalism. There is a variety of ethnic groups living in different parts of the city, and speak different languages. To dive in and submerge into another culture is just a matter of driving down the road.
The cool thing is that, if you happen to change your mind and want to learn a different language, all you need to do is to drive down a different road.
I am also fortunate enough to work in a company that promotes diversity. My colleagues speak many languages, such as English, French, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Spanish, Arabic, Russian, Vietnamese, Korean, Polish, and Italian.
Language tutors are everywhere in Toronto!
