The Language Experience

  

Frank at Iguassu Falls

The Language Experience is something anyone can enjoy. You don't have to be fluent in a language to have this experience. You just need to be willing to learn a few words and phrases.

It's easy when you use our wonderful Natural Phonetics
  Reading our phonetics is as easy as reading American English.

 
Anyone who has traveled widely knows that speaking a few words and phrases of the local language brings a smile to the faces of those you meet. It shows respect and a special friendliness.  Sometimes wonderful things happen. People may be more willing to help you, or may let you take their picture, or invite you into their home or give you a ride.  If you're at an office in another country or at a social gathering, speaking a little of their language helps "break the ice" and makes everyone feel more comfortable and relaxed. And it can even be fun!

Don't be an "ugly American" who feels everyone should speak English and is surprised when they don't!  Sure, English is the closest thing to an international language we have on this spaceship, and you can find someone who speaks a little English just about anywhere.  But people still appreciate your speaking a little of their language!  It's called being friendly and treating everyone as equals while you are out and about the global village!

To all Travelers and Tourists

Take a minute out of your life on this planet and enjoy some travel wisdom. Here are some of our favorites:
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
-Mark Twain
 
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."  - St. Augustine
 
"He who would travel happily must travel light."
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 
"One of the gladdest moments of human life, me thinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many cares and the slavery of home, man feels once more happy"
-Sir Richard Burton, the explorer
 
"To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries."  - Aldous Huxley
