Great story Tom! I agree with choosing to live with the locals, immersing yourself in their way of life. I did a Young Worker Exchange Programme in Valencia, Spain. I lived with a host family & learned the language while working in a Youth Information Centre. It was an incredible experience & I became a fluent Spanish speaker.
