Take Time to Learn the Language & Track Personal Income and Expenses During Travels’ Abroad

by AvenueWest Managed Corporate Housing

Our saga continues with our 10 best travel tips and 10 new smartphone/tablet applications all tailor made for the busy traveling professional.

Travel Tip of the Week – #6:

Learn the key phrases in your destination country’s language. Even if you only know four or five phrases such as “hello,” “thank you,” “please,” and “goodbye”, you will receive genuine smiles and kindness from the natives and better service for making the extra effort. It’s an added bonus if you also know how to say you don’t speak the language in their native tongue.

Brushing up on key phrases in the native tongue of where you are traveling to will make you look that much more professional.
