  1. Very good and excellent advice. I have had the experience of traveling to Israel in 1982 and not knowing where my accomodation was. I tried the languages I learnt but was not that good at it, because in NZ english is all we know.
    What I learned paid off and a policeman pointed me in the right direction. He didn’t know english either.
    I am glad of my experience because I appreciate what people go through when they come to NZ with very little english. It would be scary for them
    I met a Spanish speaking woman from South America who told me some words in basic Spanish and I told her some basic english.
    She told me some one put her on a bus when she had no english speaking skills and left her on her own for 3 hours.
    Later she got in touch with an english language centre and they helped her.

    • I can imagine how she goes through that time. I had an experienced such situation when living in Tajikistan before. I was being trained the local language. However, time is not enough to digest the words. But then, sign language had worked for about three months and eventually, I was able to walk through. c”,)
