What can you do if you don't know the language?

Getting Your Point Across

Language can be a problem when traveling. Especially if you don't know it in the country you are staying. To help communicate there are a number of electronic translators and dictionaries that can assist you. However, you already posses a free universal communicating assistant -- your body. Gestures can be a big help in helping people understand you. You can ask for the time by pointing to your wrist. Do a gesture for eating. And of course fingers can be used when dealing with the number stuff -- like money.
