With language learning companies like the Berlitz Group, students can choose from private and group lessons or even online classes to help them learn a new language. As one representative from the Berlitz Group says, "You don't have to be fluent to benefit from taking a course." Even mastering the basics will enhance any trip planned. In fact, the language classes will be improved upon by traveling to the destination where the person will have more opportunity to be immersed in the culture.

Anyone who would like to learn a new language before they travel in 2017 should sign up for classes early. Plan to study a few months before the trip to learn how to hold a simple conversation. Travelers will discover an added confidence when they can communicate with the locals and read signs as they journey to a new area.
