Tips for Travelling When You Don't Speak the Language

Travelling to a country where you don’t speak the language? When you travel to a foreign country, where the official language is something other than English, you could experience a language barrier. The size of the language barrier will depend on where you’re travelling to. You might find that many people speak English or it might feel like no one speaks English.
