Learning a foreign language offers several advantages. You can get better jobs, make new friends, watch films without having to read subtitles; but among the variety of good reasons to learn a foreign language, travelling abroad and experiencing a country fully has got to be at the top of the list of many passionate travellers. Today we will look at a wonderful place to practice your Spanish, Tulum.
This ancient city is one of the last places built and inhabited by the Mayan civilization. Old world diseases seem to have been the cause of its fall. It was an important commercial hub where trade routes converged for many years.
Tulum is one of those few places on earth where time seems to have stopped and you feel carried away to a different era, when life wasn’t fast, iguanas were your friends and nature was part of our lives. Don’t believe me? Take a look at this great video by Sonia Gil:
Now, let’s take a quick look at a few Spanish phrases that may be useful next time you visit Tulum:
