  1. I love this! I spent two weeks in Thailand and it was magical! I even picked up a few words from the cute kiddos I taught! Such a great way to learn a new language for sure.

  2. Talking to everyone you can is one of the best ways to learn a new language while traveling. People are generally very helpful when they see you trying and it creates a wonderful memory too!

  3. These are great tips! I find that I am too shy and self-conscious to speak in another language, despite my mom being a first generation immigrant to the US from Spain. I’ve never felt like I was good enough at speaking Spanish, so I stopped trying. This is giving me some new motivation to try. 🙂

  4. Great post!
    Learning a bit of the local language should be on the checklist when you travel.
    I recommend reading the signs in the local language and try to draw conclusions. You can find very fun mnemonics; for instance in Finland, ‘Stop’ is ‘SEIS’, which means ‘six’ in my native Spanish.
    All the best
