Be more confident - you can do more than ask where the station is or gesture wildly while shouting at the locals. Combine your modern language skills with a cultural tour, perhaps Art History or Wine Tasting?
Enjoy watching films in other languages, without the sub-titles! Immerse yourself for a few hours a month in another language and culture and expand your linguistic horizons! Take an alternative holiday, with the aim of improving your language skills, perhaps combined with a cookery course or a visit to historical sites. Take the children and stand back while they master a foreign tongue without even trying - unlike all that slogging through French homework! Discover the freedom of communication and broaden your horizons in perfect harmony.
