OK, so you decided to take that long put off trip, you’re headed to one of our neighbor countries to the south. Is Mexico your destination? Or maybe it’s a trip to South America? Or could it be that dream vacation to Spain? Well congratulation you deserve the trip, it was hard work saving for the trip, taking time off from your job, deciding where you are headed, planning the flight, booking the hotel, well you know, you gone over your check list, you believe everything is in order to make your trip that fantastic trip you have been dreaming about and I am sure it will be.
Just one thing, have you put much thought in how you are going to communicate, are you going to a place where you will be staying on a hotel compound where everyone caters to your needs and speaks English? Or will you be going with a tour group that has a tour guide that speaks English and will be your translator? Well if you answered yes to these questions I am sure you will have a great time. But……………………….
Would it not be great if you could understand a little of the language where you are headed? How about understanding a few of the local words, or maybe just ask some simple questions. I am not talking about learning a whole language before you leave on your trip. I am talking about a few simple words that will help make your trip a little more enjoyable. I know from experience that most people get frustrated, use hand signals, talk loud and did I mention frustrated, I think I did, when in a foreign place and you just want to ask a simple question, like where is the bathroom, or how about, yes I would like ice with that Coke.
