Publisher Description

No more embarrassing moments when you try to explain yourself in German!

Traveling to a new country can be a challenge, especially if you don’t know a word in the local language. Even if you are only a 'regular' tourist, it makes a world of difference if you know just a few words or simple phrases when you start communicating with locals in their own language. Not only will you be treated with more respect and openness, but apart from that, knowing the right phrases opens up a whole new dimension of experiences. Most Germans though, speak some English, however they would definitely appreciate it if you knew some of the most important phrases.

We have collected the most helpful and realistic German phrases, terms and sentences for all possible scenarios and situations in which you may find yourself. We not only wanted our selection of phrases to be practical, but also helpful as an additional learning tool that you can use every day to point at if you struggle to make yourself understood when speaking.

This phrasebook is not only geared towards travelers. If you are a student in Germany, an expat or if you are there for professional reasons, you will find helpful terms and phrases for those circumstances as well.

At the end, we have even included a section that will be helpful for kids or for their parents to facilitate their travel experience and provide useful words and sentences that will be very easy to learn.
