I’m travelling to Europe for the first time and would love to make a real effort with speaking the languages in some of the countries I’m visiting. Do you have any tips?
Joel Carnegie’s Response:
Get yourself, quick smart, into language lessons through your local TAFE, library, foreign language institution, (etc.).
Otherwise, Duolingo can also get you around the basics.
Even a smattering of language can make a difference.
I usually take phrase books for emergencies and a foreign language dictionary can help, too.
