I love language. Written, spoken, slang, you name it. Especially foreign languages. I speak Spanish fairly well, but I still wish I was 100% fluent. Then again, with a couple drinks in me I have convinced native Ecuadorians that I was part Argentinean.
I am also learning Greek, which is extremely difficult, but I’m trying! On other days, I try to practice a few words in Italian, which for now mostly consists of a word of the day in my inbox. Hey, anything helps!
One of the fun (and educational) parts about travel for me is meeting and speaking with locals. This is best achieved by speaking their language, literally. Here are some phrases you should know before you go, and some other fun and common slang words to impress your new friends.
