    IT is like studying a foreign language.

    Dear Teachers,
    Does it make sense in terms of English?

    IT is like studying a foreign language. If you are keen on making a progress, you've got to completely immerse yourself in it. My advise is if you don't work in IT, study it 8 hours a day as if it was a full time job.

    Thank you.

    Thank you, Anglika,
    why does "you've got completelly immerse..." not work?

    It can - but I loathe the use of "get" when there are better verbs to use
