Russian a Language Map (Language Map) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A trip to Russia is fascinating, especially when you can speak the language! Whether youre packing for the Winter Olympics in Sochi or a summer trip to Saint Petersburg, be sure to slip RUSSIAN a language map® in your travel bags. This language guide is packed with the most essential words and phrases youll need, and brilliantly organized so you can find what you want at a glance. You can shop for souvenirs, make reservations or order a meal, entirely in Russian! “Please” (pah-zhahl-oos-tah) and “thank you” (spah-see-bah) will become second nature as you make your way around Russia—from the State Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg to the world-famous Nikulin Circus and Bolshoi Ballet both in Moscow.

Hundreds of words and phrases youll need most

Divided into key categories such as Asking Questions, Dining Out, Meeting People, Shopping, Sightseeing, Transportation and much more

Unique snap-open and fold design

Pronunciation is easy with simple phonetics

Ultra-thin (barely 1/8” thick) and light-weight (under two ounces)

Laminated for durability

Folds up like a map to slip easily into your pocket or bag

Full color, original artwork

Synopsis:

Each i]Language Map /i] sup]R /sup] contains over 1,000 words and phrases split into important sections covering the basics for your trip to Russia. This unique i]Language Map /i] sup]R /sup] is a lightweight phrasebook, but in a durable, laminated, fold-out format.

Synopsis:

This work is a must for anyone travelling abroad. As the first phrasebook ever to appear in a 'map' format, what better guided tour could there be through the experiences of travelling in a foreign language? Also the perfect stocking filler, bon voyage gift, thank you, or party gift. A patented lamination process allows Language Maps to fold and unfold in a snap without tearing in addition to being durable, weatherproof, compact, sturdy, easy to use, and much lighter and discreet than a dictionary or phrasebook. It contains hundreds of words and phrases split into important sections, covering the basics for any trip. Language Maps are so beautifully illustrated that all travellers will be proud to use them in any setting, whether dining in an expensive restaurant or buying tickets to a museum.

About the Author

Kristine K. Kershul blends her experience as a teacher, world traveler and language scholar to create a playful, innovative way to learn and use a new language.

Teacher: As an expert linguist, Kristine spent ten years teaching German at universities in the United States and in Europe.

World Traveler: An adventurous spirit, Kristine has explored more than 100 countries, from Bhutan to Zimbabwe, and almost every exotic locale in between. She understands the problems that all travelers encounter, regardless of which country they are visiting. She knows first-hand how languages can open doors to new adventures, new friends and different cultures.

Language Scholar: Kristine completed her undergraduate and graduate studies while living in Heidelberg, Germany. She then received a second Master's Degree from the University of California in Santa Barbara and subsequently, did her Doctoral studies in Medieval German Languages and Literature. In addition to German she also speaks a number of other languages ranging from Arabic to Swahili.

A Colorful Background: Kristine's fascination for languages began as a child growing up in a tri-lingual household in Oregon, where Croatian, Danish and English were spoken.

Kristine's natural gift for languages opened doors outside the academic world. She worked as a bilingual travel guide in Europe and later, as a translator at the U.S. Embassy in Germany.

On A Personal Note: Kristine's passion for travel, foreign languages and new cultures continues to take her around the world. One never knows where she'll venture to next - Namibia, Kiribati or Guyana. Kristine is a licensed pilot, a certified diver and an avid downhill skier. She enjoys competitive horseback riding and playing the piano. She makes her home in both Seattle, Washington and in Cape Town, South Africa.
