Learn new language..
I'm sucessfully learning Thai using a book complimented with audio dialogues on DVD (Colloquial Thai, from the Colloquial series - really good stuff). Rip the audio to mp3 etc. put in your smartphone and listen ALL THE TIME - on the way to work, on the way from work, on the tube, bus, cab even when taking a dump...
Marrying someone from the country of interest speeds things up as well ;-)
It's great learning ways to comminicate with additional millions of people!
