For anyone who’s going abroad to specifically study a language, I would recommend watching the 2012 film “English Vinglish”. It’s a light comedy that touches upon some moments that foreign exchange students can often relate to, such as missing loved ones, finding confidence in oneself despite language barriers, and discovering new and exciting places. The main character is a young Indian housewife who is finding herself while spending time away from her husband/kids, preparing for her sister’s wedding and attending English classes in New York. Not to give much away, but it’s got a subtle Bollywood vibe without being over the top. Although both the plot and character development is considered pretty shallow, I do think it’s a fun movie with upbeat music.
