Hot Topic: Being a Foreigner

You move to a new country and everything's peachy for a while, then reality and culture shock set in: you're a foreigner. You're an outsider. Someone people get pointed and stared at or completely ignored when they try to ask a question.

Some people always remain on the outside, not integrating or learning the language. Others try hard to learn the language and integrate themselves into society even though it can be hard. Sometimes even people who speak the language very well remain on the outside simply because they are viewed as a foreigner.

What do you think?
Do you try to learn the language of the country you're living in?  Have you been able to integrate yourself into society?

Got an idea for a hot topic?
Email me with your hot topic, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP
