Thinking of Home Makes It Harder to Learn a Foreign Language

I wonder if this means it actually makes sense, in Taiwan to learn English from a White Person? I always thought it was more important the person / teacher, rather than where they are from. There is a group in Taiwan, I blogged about it, that is against discrimination for English Teachers who are non White, in Taiwan.

The article is about how the mind, when reminded of home, is harder for learning a foreign language. This is probably why full immersion is such a great teaching method. And if you go to a foreign country, you can usually Learn a Foreign Language such as Chinese, much faster.
