Get Lost!

Hey you, get out of town! No, seriously get out of town! Getting lost is one of the best ways to learn a language, not to mention acquire some form of temporary trauma. One summer day, I had been searching for a Bonsai Museum on foot. I must have walked an extra 10 miles in circles because of how lost I was. But, it was worth it! 

While I was lost I spent the majority of my time asking for directions, doing self-introductions with native speakers and pointing out familiar vocabulary I had seen in textbooks on roads, street signs, and advertisements. When I arrived at the museum I was pouring sweat due to the summer humidity, but I had a lot of stories to tell to the women at the reception counter. The stories also made a great Facebook status, if you’re into that kind of thing…

Think you can handle a day without google maps? Let’s talk about getting lost, and how it can help you in your journey.
