Language for Travel & Personal
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”. Nelson Mandela.
In general, people travelling to non English-speaking countries have two choices: they can rely almost exclusively on their English-speaking guide and frequent mainly places where English is spoken, or dive in and learn the rudiments of the local language, have more meaningful conversations with locals, and get better bargains if needed. In summary, you can get a vastly different travel experience if you make an effort of learning at least the basics of the language of your destination. ADC Languages offers special language courses designed for travelers.
Our Intensive First-Hand Language course includes twenty hours of training in most languages, providing you with essential phrases and sentences to deal with a waiter, airport’s officer, a taxi driver, or an hotel receptionist. Knowing even the basics of a language may impress even English-speaking locals of your destination, and could help you get better reception or service.
Make sure you include learning a new language part of your travel preparations and your trip, whether for business or for leisure, will be easier, more meaningful, and certainly more fun.
