Are you a tourist? An exchange student? A business traveler? Or just someone who wants to learn a few travel phrases, but not an entire second language? Maybe you’re getting ready to head out on your latest business trip or travel adventure, but not sure just how much of the language you need to know to get by. With Drops’ latest release, you can learn the words and phrases you’ll need to know to navigate your way around places that speak a language different from your own.
Heading to Costa Rica to hang out with the sloths? Learn Latin American Spanish with one of our 13 new Travel Pack topics.
Getting ready to explore the night markets in Korea? Pick up phrases like “how much?” or “that one” to make sure you get the food items you’re craving.
Wherever your next travels take you, Drops can help you prepare in fun, 5-minute learning sessions.
What Does Travel Pack Include?
In the Travel Talk category, you have 13 new topics with several hundred words and phrases to get you travel-ready. You’ll learn everything from essentials like “yes” and “no” or “please” and “thank you” to the basics of shopping, staying safe, and getting around. You’ll also learn numbers so that you can buy, bargain, and ask for a table for two like a champ.
Should I Learn the Language Before My Trip?
One of the questions we often hear from travelers is “do I really need to learn the language of the places I’m traveling to?” Our answer is this…
While many of the touristy spots are often filled with people who speak English (or other languages), some of the best travel experiences happen outside of those zones. Take our Resident Polyglot’s time in Iceland — while she could have gotten by with just English, the connections she made and local hangouts she got to explore because she knew the basics of Icelandic made her time there a much richer experience.
When you know even a little of the local language, experiences and opportunities open up to you. And importantly, they make your travels safer because you have a better idea of what is going on around you.
Who is Travel Pack For?
Everyone. Whether you just want to dip your toes in the water to get a feel for a language, freshen up on a language you learned back in school, or prepare for a trip, Drops’ Travel Pack is an engaging and entertaining way to do it.
