Welcome to Responsible Travel

Languages

Learning a new language is one of the best ways to assimilate yourself directly with the culture of those countries you choose to visit.

Even by knowing only a very few basic words can help break down barriers, and show that you are willing to make the effort to be a part of the local culture.

There are countless ways to learn languages. Undoubtedly, the easiest way to learn a language is to live in the county where it is spoken, whereby you will naturally absorb the language. This is a luxury many cannot afford.

Nevertheless, evening classes act as an excellent alternative to most, and a perfect opportunity to prep up before travelling abroad.

Common languages, such as French, German, Spanish and Italian are usually offered by most schools, colleges and universities on an evening or part-time.

For more exotic languages you might have to consult the national embassy for the language concerned for more advice on language courses and schools abroad. Embassies should be able to provide you with a list of accredited courses.
