When you travel it is a wonderful thing to show respect for the people and customs of the countries you visit. One easy way to do that is to learn a few simple words or phrases from their local language. I have always found that you will receive lots of praise and encouragement when you know a few polite things to say. People open up to you and interact with you on a much different level if you give their language a try. During this time of crisis when travel is harder to do, this can also be a great way to connect with people of different origins right here at home. This book gives a fantastic start to a few languages around the world. Use it as a jumping off point to teach your children about other languages and cultures.
