5 cool places to learn a foreign language abroad - CNN.com

5 cool places to learn a foreign language abroad - CNN.com | Travel & Adventure | Scoop.it

(CNN) -- When you travel to a foreign country, everything from greetings to requests to simple transactions can get "lost in translation."
Since learning the language is one of the best ways to understand a culture, why not study it while you're there on vacation?
"The more we learn about a foreign language, the more we learn about our own language and about ourselves -- who you are in that other country with other greetings, foods, ways of interacting," says Brazilian native Ana C. Thomé Williams, a senior lecturer in Portuguese at Northwestern University.
Sure, you can study in a traditional classroom, but there are other, wonderfully interactive ways to pick up skills.
In some places around the world, you can swap foreign tongues in hip urban bars. In others, learn a new language while sailing, picking up culinary tips in an ethnic kitchen or rock climbing. And you're likely to meet some new local friends along the way.
"Psychologically, when you are in another country, you need to be more open to challenges. It will help you be more open to challenges back in your own country," says Williams, who specializes in intercultural communication. "It's a good training for life."
Here are five ways -- and five cool places -- around the world to learn a foreign language:
