Exploring is an important part of life, as it forces us to learn new things, step outside of our comfort zone, and grow as individuals. But you don’t have to travel across the world to explore a new city. Maybe the most important city for you to see through a new lens is the one you’ve lived in your entire life.If you’re going abroad, I hope these travel tips help. If not, try applying them at home. You may be surprised by what you find.
1. Spend (the first) days being a tourist.
2. Take a cooking class and explore the local cuisine.
3. Travel with a backpack when you go off on your weekend adventures.
4. Explore your city without a tour book.
5. Study the language before you go, and when you arrive, find a language partner.
Locals will appreciate your effort over perfection. If you’re applying these tips toward your hometown, sign up for a language partner through your local university. Who doesn’t want to be bilingual?
6. Hang with the locals.
You’ll get a real feel for the culture and may even become friends with a few people along the way. Language partners are a great resource for finding the right places.
7. If possible, live with a host family or rent a Airbnb for a proper local feeling.
8. Wander around and get lost.
9. Keep a diary.
10. Finally, look at every phase in life as the next big adventure. I love Eleanor Roosevelt’s advice. She once said, “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”
Keen to speak French well?
Do you want to be able to get by with the language or be able to speak it fluently?

In point, English, Spanish, and French are three languages which can be spoken in almost any popular dialect (or accent) and be mutually intelligible anywhere the language is spoken. A native speaker of American English can go to England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia, Guyana, Belize, Jamaica, Sierra Leone, Liberia, many other countries, and can expect to be, more or less, understood. The same goes with Spanish: almost any type of popular Spanish can be spoken and understood in any Spanish speaking country. French is often learned by people throughout the world as a second language, and its various forms are often book standardized and mutually understandable to anybody who has a knowledge of the language.
