A B C of making yourself clear

If no-one understands what your saying, then to be honest, it’s as if your not saying anything, because if your message or point of view was not conveyed in a manner that anyone understood, then you didn’t actually say anything.

Speaking clearly and making yourself clear is even more vital when your travelling and going on Holiday to a foreign country, or when your on a group holiday.

When planning your Holiday a lot of things can be done in the safety of your own home, like booking your Hostels accommodation or Hotel and confirming your flights, but the real adventure starts when you take those first steps and head off to the airport for your Holiday.

Sometimes it can be hard to make yourself clear when away from home so it’s always advisable to try and learn a couple of sentences or words in the local language, it can really help you get by, it also shows how eager you are to mingle and have a good holiday as you took the time and made the effort to learn a few words.

Even when your at home making yourself clear is also important, below is the Phonic Alphabet, so next time your trying to spell out words try and to use it, you will be surprised how easily you are understood and how quickly you get your point across.
