Started learning the local language

  1. My spouse relocated to my country.

    We have at least three languages used here; I repeat, THREE LANGUAGES!!

    English for work (we are not from English-speaking countries),
    Another local language for communication with the locals,
    And another foreign language for religious culture purpose (yes, we want to practice our beliefs).

    ..and my spouse is a level 1 (out of 100 or 1k levels) beginner at all of these languages..

    Can you imagine how hard it is for an aspie, who relocated to a foreign land, and doesn't understand any of the spoken languages?? The environment, especially when his office mates speaking non-stop in foreign languages all-day but he wasnt invited in the conversation, became an annoying noise to him, and he felt really distressed, lonely & depressed.

    And because of the language barriers, and asperger on top of that, he couldnt make friends, so he felt really depressed.

    Out of worriness, i approach my friend who taught language, to teach my spouse. They started the tutoring today.

    My spouse was in a depressed mood today, but after the tutoring, he seems in a happier mood. He learnt lots today. The tutor (my friend) also is extremely good in tutoring him. The tutor said my spouse is a fast learner.

    She (the tutor) gave my husband an interesting homework:
    To jot down the words he heard from his office mates, and then they can analyze them together in the next lesson.

    I'm thankful to my friend, my husband and God for this beautiful hope.
