So after being in China for a little bit, it made me realize I need to learn a language or two if Iโ€™m going to be competitive in this world. It sucked going everywhere and not knowing what the simplest of things said. I was scared to get certain things at the grocery store because I had no idea what it said. My next trip Iโ€™ll be heading to Ecuador to learn Spanish for 3 months. Iโ€™ll be leaving next month as I need to make sure everything is alright with my family first.

I found a private tutor that comes highly recommended for 20 hours per week for $8/hour. So $160/week for language lessons. I rented an apartment on AirBnB.com for $211/month total cost of $635 after fees. Iโ€™ll be flying United straight through to Quito with no layovers for a cost of $542. Iโ€™ll just have to buy food, transportation, and whatever activities I want to do. They use the dollar so no exchanging money.

Iโ€™m super excited and Iโ€™ve been joking with my dad that Iโ€™ll be able to press 2 on the phone when I come back.

I also wanted to hop over to Brazil to learn Portuguese since itโ€™s relatively easy to learn after Spanish but I need to apply for a visa thereโ€™s no easy way to get there from Quito. A flight back there would be $800+ and just not worth it. Maybe I can take up some Skype classes to add another language to my resume.
