LANGUAGE FOR TRAVEL AND TOURISM

Language for tourists, expats and people related to the tourism industry.

If you travel frequently on vacation, on business or are about to move to another country, then you need to know about the importance of language when you travel. The time and effort invested into learning new languages will not only make your travel easier, it will make it a lot more fun.

  • You don´t have to be fluent

Do I wish I could speak German fluently? You bet, but I don’t and I realize those limitations, but being able to read key words (like Danger and Do Not Enter) has helped me countless times.

  • Makes life easier

If you brush up on key words and phrases before traveling to a new country, you will save yourself time and money. Learn how to book a ticket, or how to ask for basic directions.

  • Closer to the culture

Languages aren’t taught in a vacuum, they necessarily must also include lessons in history, cuisine and even etiquette. Learning a language helps you appreciate a new country in ways you wouldn’t otherwise. You understand why things are done in a certain way and you learn to appreciate new cultures for those reasons. People are also much more willing to engage with you if you learn a new language, even if it’s not perfect.

  • Rewarding

Tourism plays an important role worldwide and is a steadily growing economic sector. Customer satisfaction and the creation of a strong brand therefore play an ever larger part for each company. In the competitive and constantly changing tourism industry, it is a challenge to develop successful customer contact as it is more and more difficult to differentiate yourself from the competition.
