You will enjoy your time abroad more fully if you get to know the customs and culture of your chosen country before you go. Spend some time reading or searching the internet. Talk to someone who has been to the country you’ll stay in. Learn basic phrases in the native language to help you communicate.
We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with current travel information for your local area as well as general travel safety tips.
