Learn new Languages
Learning a foreign language is an incredibly rewarding experience and a serious confidence booster. You’ll get to overcome some of your fears and doubts, learn more about yourself, meet new people, and perhaps travel to places you would’ve never dared to visit before. Plus, the constant positive feedback from native speakers, their surprise and encouragement is always a motivation when they discover that, yes you do understand what they are saying.
We at the Pocket Learner believe that individuals can add a new dimension to their holiday if they have a basic ability in a foreign language which will help them to 'get by', i.e. to order food and drink, find their way around, buy tickets, go shopping etc. If you have a more advanced knowledge of the language, you can have real conversations with people you meet.
If relatives or friends speak a different language, learning that language will help you to communicate with them. It can also give you a better understanding of their way of thinking.
We have designed the Pocket Learner to enhance vocabulary building in any language you desire whether working individually or in a group setting.
Knowledge of foreign languages helps us to new friends, find partners, establish useful business contacts, increases job and promotion opportunities. Going on a business trip to a country where
you are able to speak a foreign language may also help you to make sales, negotiate and secure contracts as you might be better placed to demonstrate your interest and commitment.
How many of us when we travel overseas would love to be able to communicate to the native population, to confidently walk into a store, supermarket, restaurant or bar and not worry about what we are buying or eating.
The great thing about languages is that you do not have to be a fluent speaker to be welcomed and appreciated by the local population. Even a reasonable number of phrases and words will brighten your experience and perhaps give you opportunities you never dreamt would ever happen.
On a personal level there will always be an unbreakable connection between you and the culture and history of the people you encounter.
