    Whenever I travel to a new country I always try to at least learn a couple of words like hello, thank you and goodbye. If nothing else it shows you’re trying. I’ve studied languages and know bits of a few but I really wish I was fluent in another language. Languages are so interesting

      Agreed! I would love to become fluent in another language.

    Before going to any country, I always learn the basics. Being half German, growing up speaking and hearing the language, I think languages come more easily to me. As well, I took French starting in Grade 3 into University and also speak it at work. Not that I am any good at it, but at a intermediate level of both German and French. Now you just have to do another post with how to say good-bye in 18 different languages! Ciao

      Haha I love that idea, thanks! I wish I could pick up languages like you do, I have such a hard time learning languages.

    I also wish I had continued with French in school. I took it until grade 10 and then stopped. But it would be so handy to have another language! And totally agree with you on Spanish – it’s the language I’m most attracted to and would most love to learn. I took a few years of Mandarin but it never stuck.

      Taking Mandarin must have been really cool.
      I love taking Spanish. I really should be more consistent though haha.

    I always try to learn the basics of any country I go to and love this! Was crazy when I first went to Southeast Asia, while some people hate not understanding anything, I love getting pushed out of my comfort zone when a new language is involved.

      I’m like you, I also love being outside my comfort zone, though occasionally I do panic haha!
