“When my wife and I considered going to the U.S., we had many cities as options to choose from. After some weeks of study and reading about the possible places, we decided to go to Denver. Learning a new language is a lot like learning to ride a bike, skiing, or climbing a mountain. You must pay attention, persevere, and work hard to improve day-by-day to reach your goal Try it! Here in Colorado, the outdoor-friendly atmosphere is more than a game, it is a lifestyle.”
