SECRET TO A FREE HOLIDAY UPGRADE – EVEN IF YOU’RE BOOKED – SPEAK THE LANGUAGE
Holiday season is nearly upon us – kids have just weeks to go before the Summer break and if you’re like me, you are now frantically scrabbling around for a last minute deal. If you are not like me (ie you are organised), your holiday has been booked for months – I must try this.
Whichever camp you fall into, there is a simple and remarkable effective way to secure a better holiday and here it is: Make an Effort to Speak their Language!
Sound like too much effort?
It’s not – it can actually be fun (see below).
What is more your efforts will be repaid a hundredfold. There is the basic relief of being able to express yourself and be understood. Being understood means you get what you want; you receive the food you ordered; you understand the directions; you can shop with confidence; you can chat with the locals. What is more, the reception you receive from local people is that much warmer. They appreciate your effort to talk in their language.
EASY WAYS TO LEARN A LANGUAGE
OK I am hopelessly biased!
So let me start with some recommendations other than KLOO Games which I think are worthwhile.
If you like audio I recommend Michael Thomas CDs. I used these in the car to learn Italian and they are a great way to prepare for a trip.
If you prefer to read then I like the Collins Easy Learning Conversational Books – they are much better than the usual phrasebooks.
KLOO LANGUAGE GAMES – DR TOY BEST VACATION TOY
We are hopelessly biased when it comes to KLOO but we are not the only one who recommends it! At the recent Dr Toy Awards in the USA KLOO won “Best Vacation Toy 2011” as well as “Best Classic Toy 2011”. In the UK we won “Toytalk Best Board or Card Game 2011″. These prestigious awards are used by the US and UK media and parents as a guide to the very best toys and games to buy. Our American customers love KLOO. They liked KLOO because it’s totally portable, good fun and it makes learning a language easy. “You can play on your travels and speak when you arrive!”
KLOO is so effective because it embeds powerful language learning techniques in the game and how in just 10 months, we have won more awards than any foreign language game ever. Watch below how easy it is to make French or Spanish sentences with KLOO cards.
What’s in a KLOO Language Game
000’s of sentences
lots of fun.
For the KLOO French Combo go here
For the KLOO Spanish Combo go here
I hope you’ll give KLOO a try. However, if I have not managed to persuade you to try KLOO, learn a language anyway. It is a rewarding thing to do and actually great fun to use on holiday.
Learn how to make thousands of Spanish sentences with a single deck of KLOO cards. Easy!
