Hi, native speakers of English!

If you're abroad, you can learn a language faster because the situation forces you to think in the foreign language 24/7.

Can you use "oblige" in this context?

I'm not that sure about "force" either, so your suggestions are most welcome.

Thank you in advance.

    You can use "obliges" or "forces" in that place in the sentence and have nearly the same meaning. Both sound correct.
