I can’t speak the local language. How will I communicate?
25 July, 2016
An ADRA Host will be with you throughout the trip to help you communicate with the locals. Additional translators will also be made available to help you if the project requires this. We also provide a Country Guide with some key phrases in the local language that we encourage you to practise and learn before you depart. During orientation you will have another chance to try out your language skills, and, if all else fails, body language, facial expressions and smiles can communicate a thousand words… just keep this in mind when trying local food for the first time… be gracious if you don’t like it and the people will respect you for trying it.
