You also have the opportunity to make different friends when you do come across people that speak your own language as well. 

Speak a Different Language

If you are planning on heading to Japan for example, using Memrise to learn Japanese is most certainly beneficial, so that you can fully soak up the local culture whilst you are there. 

Learn About a New Culture

Travelling abroad enables you to explore, learn and embrace these different cultural beliefs which encourages you to be more open minded and tolerant. You also have the ability to reflect on your own beliefs and how this compares to the new culture in which you are learning about as you travel. It is a positive thing to be constantly learning and broadening your horizon.
