Traveling in speaking the country's language.
If you like traveling and exploring things outside of tourist areas, it should be very useful to speak the regional language. To buy or simply order in a restaurant, by expressing yourselves with only gestures, could be a very unpleasant adventure. In a remote area, it is very useful to speak the local language in case of emergency. It could save your life. Some people travel for exploring exotic dishes. Numerous TV programs on exotic cuisine, give us the desire to discover the flavors of the world and go in person to smell, taste and share with the people of the country. Even if you cannot travel, you can order a cookbook in the original language. This experience can be shared with a group of friends. Once a week, the group can develop a culinary theme and learn the associated vocabulary and then share knowledge among the group or with your guests.
