Lost in Translation: 4 Language Tools To Pack in Your Suitcase

When I was eight years old, I remember preparing for my first trip to a country that spoke another language. My Dad purchased a CD-ROM language course in French, learning pointless phrases such as “I am Madame Burton’s gardener.” He would laugh at how ridiculous these phrases were, as they offered no practical assistance for our trip to France. Language tools have come along way even in the last two decades. Luckily travelers don’t have to pop in CD-ROMs to learn a thing or two about their destination’s language. Now you can throw these four tools in your pocket when you hit the road to knock down language barriers and make sense of destinations that are seemingly foreign.

Three Free Apps to Help You Get Around London

I was only eight years old the first time I visited London and even at a young age, I knew this city was a challenge to travel around as an outsider.
