Fatherly Advice

Back when I did a semester abroad in England, my parents came for a visit and we spent the month of December traveling London, Tuscany and Paris. My dad was a bit nervous about going to countries of which he didn't know the local language, until he figured out one magical phrase. (even using in their travels to Vietnam)

Italian: non capisco
French: Je ne comprends pas
Vietnamese: tôi không hiểu
English: I don't understand

Followed by a fun game of charades with a stranger as you try to figure out how to communicate without a common language.
