Yes take it off if your plan is to go abroad and enjoy. Leave aside the feeling of being lost in a foreign country because you do not speak the language.
How can you come around this situation?
Easy, learn the language!
You do not need to go into the depths of that language, learning the basics will do. Find a good school, and even a short intensive course will provide the basics of a foreign language. You’ll get the tools to go around and mingle with people, find the sounds, the meanings, catch new words, pronounce them learn the right opportunity to use them.
So take the gag off, learn a bit of the language, and go for it! It’s easier that it sounds.
