One of the bigger hurdles on going to a foreign country is being able to communicate. I was reminded on how awful my Spanish was over Memorial Day weekend while I was in Bogota, Colombia. So, now that I'm back and recovered from my trip, it's time to get learning another language so I'm not being "that gringo" again.
Luckily for me, the BBC has a very comprehensive list of languages and their travel phrases. They feature 12 week courses in Spanish, French, Italian and German and for 40 other languages, quick phrases you can download in mp3 format.
Now it's time to get studying!
