Parlez-Vous Francais?

Dec 06, 2013

Do you speak more than one language? How often do you get to use the other language(s)? Why not take a trip to an area with people who speak that language and practice your skills?

Striking up a conversation with someone you meet in a café or a store in another country is one of the things I like most about travelling. The sheer joy of passing the time with a stranger from another place resonates with me – it gives me a sense of the size of the world we live in.

Finding a person to speak with won’t be hard. You’ll find them in all the same places you would go at home – the supermarket, the coffee house, the park. Strike up a conversation about something interesting while you pass the time. You’ll find that you have more in common with that person than you thought.

So, try it! JEK Travels can set up your next trip so you can speak the native language with someone in a café. They will enjoy helping you through rough spots and may try their hand at English too. Either way, it will be a memory you’ll keep forever.
