Traveling to the non-English Speaking Country

When we get the opportunity to travel to several tourist destinations, difficulties occur all of the destinations we choose have great respect for their mother tongue.

What we have to prepare then? Of course as usual early in the course of preparation needs to be done, but special arrangements must be made to anticipate the situation in the resorts that use languages other than English.

1. Learn the customs in the destination country. We need to study what kind of habits of local residents carried out before the trip, such as the belief that they believed, places of worship and prayer, the places are forbidden to enter, how to say hello, greet resident, entered the restaurant and others.
2. The language used. In order for the trip enjoyable and not bother with language difficulties, there's nothing wrong when following language course destinations.Especially when traveling in the destination country lasts long enough, follow the course for 2-3 months.
3. Buy books and CDs for conversational everyday conversation. This can be done before the trip takes place, especially before the days of departure. This action is a cost saving by learning self-taught, in order to facilitate in reciting the language of destination country.
4. Make a small note about basic conversation is often done. Through a small note that we can learn basic conversational sentences are often used, such as "How are You?", “Where is it this place?", "Please, Help me", "Thank you, Sir!", "Good Morning!" and so on. Something else needs to be prepared for example conversations in public places,asking price, ask how, ask directions, and so on. Distinguish verb with a noun. Nouns more easily described, while the verb is more difficult to be described.

5. Small notes for important things. Adjectives are usually found on the instructions of the road. Especially in the opposite words like the words in and out, top-down, wait-go, and so on.
6. Ask for help. Why not, right? Ask for help to local residents, for example, says, "How to say in your language?". To be more active in asking for help, give the paper to write it, so we get a new vocabulary of their language.

7. Looking for places to eat/local restaurants. Local restaurants provide a cheaper price, eat at cafes or restaurants that are not visited by tourists. Find someone to help understand how the local food menu and describe it so that we can enjoy good food at cheap prices.
8. Learn the local language directly from the source. It's really a great experience? While drinking water diving, day trips while we increase knowledge in a foreign language that can later be useful in the following way. Even possible to apply for a job, help a friend. Great!
9. Important! Always Smiling! True, just smile! Smile is the easiest language and understood by all people around the world. Asks for help with a smile or say thank you in local language will add capital in our journey there. A cultural oasis in your tour.
