The biggest problem that we face in a foreign land is the language barrier. Resorting to sign language or using translation dictionaries is a cumbersome process especially if you are to temporarily relocate to that country. SOLA is a linguistic device that is fun and interactive and can come of some use in such situations. In fact it was developed by a bunch of students to communicate easily with the exchange students in Mandarin.
