How to Say Thank You in 50 Languages- World of Wanderlust

one thing i love about living in london is the plethora of languages that you hear on any given day. and developing an ear that is better able to identify where someone is from based on their accent or the sound of the language. when i first moved here a year and a half ago, all of the non-american english accents sounded the same to me. english, irish, south african, australian. now? i notice the difference almost immediately. anyways, i find it so fascinating to learn where people come from and more of their story. and i love to honor their story and their upbringing by making an effort- like learning how to say “thank you” in their mother tongue. so i pretty much LOVED this little guide put together by World of Wanderlust
