From the misty vestiges of Machu Picchu in Peru
to the heights of Tapei 101 in Taiwan, from the Mayan temples of Mexico
to the shopping temples of Tokyo
, from the collections of the Musée du Louvre in Paris
to the open-air East Side Gallery in Berlin
, from the Rio de Janeiro Carnival to the Street Parade in Seville
, the world is a wonderful place.
For some, walking the Great Wall of China
is a spiritual experience. For others, savouring a delicious dish of fresh pasta in a charming wine-growing village in Italy
has the same effect. Chill out in a traditional coffee shop in Vienna
or explore Costa Rica
’s coffee bean plantations. One thing is for sure: immersing yourself in the culture of the country you’re visiting will help you understand other essential dimensions of the language you’re studying.
