Is it really that effective to travel to build vocabulary, or can I just take a course instead?
There is only so much you can learn from being taught a language in the classroom or through a course; this is why traveling can help you expand your vocabulary. Once you have a certain knowledge of a language, there are always aspects that are going to be a little different in practice and when dealing with clients whose native language it is. By visiting the country or region whose language you are learning, will allow you to receive experience in real-time and gain a greater understanding of how the language works.
By fully experiencing a place, will benefit your language level notably. Just listening to locals talk can help with language, as you might not be able to understand everything that is being said at the start, but you can recognise certain words and get the idea of what is being discussed. This will mean that later on, you will remember these conversations and be able to include what you have heard from locals in your own work, making it more fluent and purposeful.
You will be amazed by what you can learn from locals when you travel to build vocabulary.
If you want to become an interpreter then it is imperative that you visit the chosen country in which they speak the language you want to learn.
Pronunciation is something that can be hard to learn when you are not experiencing the language firsthand and all the time. There might be different ways to pronounce one word, but all have different meanings. This is why being able to travel and experience these languages in real-time with locals is vital because slowly you will be able to understand these small differences; they will come naturally to you.

Once you starting having fun with your career and learning a new language, then you will become more confident with it and in effect, this will make it easier to learn as you actually gain a greater interest.
