We offer a curated selection of language books on this page. It’s often unrealistic to learn a foreign language fluently before traveling, but you still need to be able to communicate. That’s where phrasebooks come in handy. These books can provide you language study prior to your trip but also offer quick reference during your travels. They all have a compact size and many include a mini dictionary. You don’t have to learn grammar to use these, rather, the books teach you practical sentences you can practice. They also include phonetic translations for difficult words so you have a better idea how to pronounce the words. If you have an upcoming trip and aren’t sure where to start in your language study, start with one of these phrasebooks. We offer both the Lonely Planet and Eyewitness Travel Guide brands.
