Namaste, App Kaise Ho…translation in English.. Hello, How are you??
Last year I understood the importance of knowing some words of local language. How?? Here is the story..
During my Thailand Trip, I visited Koh Phi Phi and Koh Tao islands. Being a street food food lover, I tried many local Thai dishes. Thai food is amazing. But I found it little difficult to communicate with local Thai people who hardly understand any English. My experience would have been much much better if I had some knowledge of their language.
If you brush up on key words and phrases before traveling to a new country, you can save your lot of time. Knowing some words, phrases of native language makes you, and those you interact with, happy.
First off, it makes travel so much easier. Being able to read a sign or ask someone where the washroom can make a fun travel experience.
Even if it is not grammatically all correct, the smiles on people’s faces when you speak to them in their mother tongue show that they appreciate it. And in return, you also feel a sense of accomplishment. (Oh My God! I said “Hello!” And they understood!) Its pretty amazing.
