If you don't know how to say it, just Point It!
As I am getting ready to move to a new city without speaking a single word of its language, I was really happy to read about Point It, the Taverler's Language Kit. This book is full of illustrations that will help you out whenever you are having trouble communicating in a foreign language. From now on, you will just need to point at the picture representing what you are so desperately trying to communicate. Point It has proven to be really useful and is being used by UN peacekeeping forces, Olympic athletes and speech therapists. "The book is the result of the author's extensive travels in the five continents."
Even though I just heard about it, Point It has been around since 1992; it's published by Graf-Editions and is available on all the Amazon sites: for ,C 5.00 on Amazon.de, for -#3.99 on Amazon.co.uk, or you can bid on it starting at $11.68 on Amazon.com.
And now I just wish you a pleasant journey!
