Embrace your language mistakes when navigating a new culture
You benefit by accepting them and then moving on
There is no way around it: you are going to make errors when you try to communicate in a new language, whether you are conversing in the short term as a traveler or in the long term as an expat.
Whether you embrace this concept or not, it’s going to happen anyway. So you may as well accept it, live with it, roll around in it, and move forward beyond it.
