You’ve probably heard it many times before, but when you speak a little of the native language in the foreign country you visit, the local people are more likely to help you and appreciate your efforts to communicate with them. A recent visit to France made this very clear to me when I tried to buy sundries at a local shop.
When I approached the manager for help finding batteries, in English, he said, I speak your language, can’t you try to speak mine. I smiled and said, “un peu” which means, a little and that broke the ice. He helped me find the items I wanted to buy, and I bade him “bonne nuit, mon ami” good night, my friend. This exchange would not have been easy for me had I not taken some French in high school. But it really made me think that it’s time to dust up my French and really delve into the language. I love Paris and want to visit again soon. Knowing how much fluency contributes to a fun and memorable visit, I’m starting lessons with Rosetta Stone.
