  1. Of course, learning the common terms in a foreign language helps a lot if you’re going on a study tour. With internet it’s become a bit easier. Apps like Google Translate and Duolingo can be helpful in finding the right words at the right moment. Still one should certainly remember the frequently used words phrases in a language. #studyabroadlithuania
