Description

A phrasebook covering 14 of the most commonly-spoken European languages: Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish. For vacation and business travelers visiting almost any country in the EU, this book will cover the essential phrases needed for a smooth, successful trip. Easy to browse and easy to carry, it will travel with you wherever you go and give you language help at your fingertips. 

Each language has its own phrasebook section organized by subject, covering transportation, hotels, meals, shopping, post offices and banks, sports, health care and more. The phrasebook and glossary are accompanied by a detailed pronunciation guide, using the unique system of “imitated pronunciation” to ensure you are always understood. At the end of each unit is a 2,000-word mini-dictionary.

Each language section also includes a detailed menu guide that defines hundreds of ingredients and dishes, so you can enjoy the varied cuisines of Europe without confusion or embarrassment.
