Breaking down language barriers

More often than not, you will find plenty of people around the world who do indeed speak your mother tongue fluently, and are more than willing to assist you if you are humble and polite. However, you cannot always rely on that and you should attempt to be prepared. It’s also a matter of respect. You are a guest in another person’s country, attempt to play by their rules instead of forcing your own upon them.

Here are some tips to help you break down language barriers.

  • Immerse yourself in the language of the country you are planning to visit, before you board the plane. Listen to music from that country, watch movies in that language, and listen to recordings of a few useful phrases. The quickest and most effective way to learn a language is to throw yourself into it entirely and absorb anything and everything you can. (Well done everyone studying at Lexis)
  • While travelling, sign language will be your best friend. Reading body language and using your hands to motion about what you are trying to say. It can feel like a constant game of charades, but it will be the most useful game you’ve ever played. It will help you find the right bus, discover the best restaurants, and make unexpected friends.
  • If charades isn’t working, do not just begin yelling louder in English. This does not work. Speaking louder will not make someone who doesn’t speak your language, magically understand what they heck you are saying. Would you have any greater chance of understanding Mandarin (assuming you don’t already), if it was just yelled at you at a louder volume? Probably not.
  • If you feel the need to, carry a book of key phrases and words. You can often find pocket translation dictionaries in your local bookstore or online. If you are lucky enough to own and afford one, use a smartphone. Google Translate App is a best friend when travelling. Although it may not always give grammatically correct translations, it will get you close enough to communicate
  • Be willing to make mistakes and sound a little silly. Once you let go of that fear, communicating is actually easier and efforts were appreciated. The only way to improve your language skills is by speaking, making mistakes, and learning from them.
