Friends Can Be Like Your Rosetta Stone

Friends Can Be Your Rosetta Stone

Looking for a way to improve your foreign language vocabulary and grammar while traveling?  My advice: watch Friends.  I haven’t been to a country yet that doesn’t run Friends on the local station.  You already know the story so you can focus on subtitles and refresh your skills.

Over ten years ago, when I lived in Argentina for a summer, I was perfectly fluent in Spanish.  I had been taking it in school from day 1, so the immersion was just what I needed to take my study to the next level.  Now, with no reason to speak in Spanish, I’m a little rusty.

I took this picture on the treadmill at the gym.  Multi-tasking at it’s finest: gaining knowledge while loosing the taco and tequila weight :)
