Synopses & Reviews
Travelers abroad often need help with their foreign language skills. And even an "A" in high school French doesn't help in Brazil. But here's a handy pocket guide that uses pictures that work in any language and in any country. The traveler just finds the page, points to the image, and the language barrier drops away like magic. The illustrations include necessities such as Band-Aid, baby bottle, and gas station-and non-emergency needs, like suntan lotion, cocktail, nightclub, and museum. Divided into clearly marked sections such as food and drink, medical, out on the town, accommodation, travel, getting to know you, and money (including numbers), it's the key to instant communication anywhere. And each word is also translated into a variety of languages.
