The economy stinks, and your vacation plans aren't what you'd like them to be. Let's say you've always dreamed of going to France, but this year you're tightening the belt and staying close to home. While putting that expensive vacation on hold, why not bring France to you? Take a month or two (or more) and immerse the entire family into life "a la francaise" all the way. Consider your "at home French adventure" preparation for your future trip. Plug into these suggestions and, by the time you really set foot on French ground (or Italian, German, Chinese, etc), you'll feel as if you've already been there.
If instead you've wanted to travel abroad to bring your children to the country of their ancestors, this is also a wonderful way for your children to learn about their heritage! Actively participating in these activities will give them fun experiences while learning about their family background. One day, when they do visit that country, they will feel more in touch with the people and the culture.
ON THE ROAD
WHEN YOU GO
Most people are fiercely proud of their heritage, culture and language, so preparing yourself for a future vacation to a foreign country in this way will make your trip much more enjoyable. The people will be extremely appreciative of your efforts to speak the language, and you'll receive a lot more pleasure from your interaction with the people and the sites you'll visit. Besides, ongoing learning with your family is just plain fun!
