Introduction

The Rough Guide European phrasebook is a highly practical basic introduction to seven contemporary European languages: Czech, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. Laid out in clear A-Z style, each section uses key-word referencing to lead you straight to the words and phrases you want - so if you need to book a room, just look up 'room'. The Rough Guide gets straight to the point in every situation, in bars and shops, on trains and buses, and in hotels and banks.

The main part of each language section in the Rough Guide is a double dictionary: English into each of the seven languages then each of the seven languages into English. Before that, there's a page explaining the pronunciation system we've used, then a section giving some very basic features of each language as well as other essentials like numbers, days, months and telling the time.

The section that goes from English into each of the foreign languages gives easy-to-use transliterations of the foreign words wherever pronunciation might be a problem, and to get you involved quickly in two-way communication, the Rough Guide includes dialogues featuring typical responses on key topics - such as finding a room and asking directions.

In the Czech/French/German/Greek/Italian/Portuguese/Spanish-English dictionaries, we've given some basic words and phrases you're likely to hear as well as signs, labels, instructions and other words you might come across in print or in public places. Finally each section in the Rough Guide rounds off with a Menu Reader, giving a run-down of food and drink terms that you'll find indispensable whether you're eating out, stopping for a quick drink, or browsing through a local food market.

Have a good trip!
