What would you do if you are in this situation? Suppose you 're touring abroad. There are few those who speak English well. You're looking around famous temple. Then one guy ask you "May I help you to sightsee?" "I'm learning English and I'd like to introduce here for free" But he doesn't speak English well. It's difficult to communicate with him. What would you do?

What would you do? Please do not go with a stranger. When you are traveling people can see you are a tourist. They can lie and take you anywhere and do anything to you - you do not know what might happen. In general people do not do things "for free"... ask yourself "why would this person want to help me?" -------- Protect yourself while traveling, say no thank you and/or walk away. If you need information or direction while traveling find an official person or police officer at / near / working at the location. My sister's friend got robbed and killed trusting a "nice" person who wanted to "help" her overseas (not naming the country). Please don't be a victim. Yes, there are nice people out there - but there are just as many bad people. Travel smart. Please.

I would most likely to ignore the person. Reason? 1. When person says "for free". The first thing comes to my mind is: what's the catch? If person himself mentions the "for free" it sounds kinda suspicious. The last time I believed "for free" I got swarmed by weird Christian sect...and not even cool one like the Amish. 2. Bad English...I would get migraine trying to understand what he's trying to say. 3. He's guy...I'm more likely not to trust woman. Probably silly.

Hi, I would thank him because he can point out things to you without having to speak. It's handy to carry a small pocket dictionary with you with helpful phrases.However some people would ignore him.
