People may worry that speaking a non-native language will cause problems [ logical incompleteness ]. In my opinion, using a different language will lead to more practical issues than pressing social ones[unclear  ].

I believe living abroad will not cause a severe social effect[wrong word  ]. Firstly, one must have paid attention to the country’s touchy culture. [choppy sentence  ]So they know what to avoid. Secondly, most foreigners will accept your[ shift of person ] small mistakes as you[shift of person  ] show no offense to them. Thirdly, if you are in a key position [ unclear ]representing the country, you must be adept at this language and culture. For example, the president [ unclear -President ]usually avoid sensitive issues in the [ article error ]official talking. However, you can say whatever you want without being noticed[logical incompleteness  ]. That is why your words cannot arouse the sociery’s[wrong word  ] attention.

On the other hand, there is a great impact on practical problems[unclear  ]. For one[wrong phrase  ], lacking[ wrong word ] of the daily language will bring on[ preposition error ] difficulties in catching what others are conveying. The unfamiliarity with the language will result in infinite inconvenience of completing the work. For another, people in different countries deal with problems in various ways. If you mess them up, it will[absolute writing  ] turn out to be a misunderstanding. For instance, thumb up means “Good job” in China, while it is a way to take[ wrong word ] taxis in America and Europe. Thumb up is even an abusive gesture in Australia and some middle-east [ spelling error ]countries.

In conclusion, I hold the view that living in a foreign country can bring practical problems on[preposition error  ], while it has less effect on grievous social matters.
