The purpose of this article is to highlight the many possibilities and opportunities that open up through language learning, using my experience as reference. Firstly, I expand on my various motivations for language learning from a young age up to where I am today. Secondly, I describe my first few days of moving to Quebec, Canada, for my placement year abroad. Lastly I outline the ways in which my year abroad has impacted on me as a person and on what I see are the potential benefits of language learning more generally.
