The key to enter in a new culture and understand the people of that culture is to understand their language. Different languages sets different environments of a culture, it’s hard to understand a society without knowing its language. So we may establish that language is the key, to understand a culture, but what is the key to understand their language?
The most effective way of understanding a language, is to adopt it, it will affect your own language but it is essential, once you decide to live in a different culture. Language may be defined as the knowledge of communication and adoption of language is the way to increase that knowledge.
When I was in my own Culture and I used my own language that time language was just a way of communication for me but after traveling to Pakistan I came into a new culture with new language.
I was restricted with my own language I couldn’t use it, no one knows me who am I and what kind of personality I have. I start observing them and noticing them while they communicate to each other. It took time for me to understand them like this, but it helped me to begin to understand their language. After some time I was able to adopt their language and I start to communicate with them. After a time period, as long as 4 years, I don’t feel much different from them now. I know them I know their culture and the way they live and now I am the merger between the two languages.
