Become a Discoverer.

Discover more about your world by living in it. Learn foreign languages through immersive study. Master new skills by going to where they do them best. Go to where you feel uncomfortable, until strangers become your friends and you begin to feel at home.

Our best material comes by email. Join us for entertaining (and useful) anecdotes about living in difficult places and learning hard things. (Here’s what we’ve sent so far.)


Discover Discomfort - About us

About Us

We’re on a mission to help people become more connected to the world around us. We believe in immersive travel — living like a local, learning the local language and the things local people do. As we go, we’ll share what we learn, with guides on how you can do it, too.

We’re currently in Egypt, learning Egyptian Arabic.
