« Cinematic Road Trip: Arkansas | Main | On the Ground in Myanmar »

That's fantastic! The first time I went to China, I couldn't remember how to ask for the bill. I spent 20minutes gesturing to get the wait staff to bring me the bill.

However, I don't have iPod.

For those like me (with no iPod), I suggest brushing up on the language before you find yourself in a foreign country at a loss for words. At www.italki.com you can find native speakers from more than 200 countries who will not only practice the language with you before you go, but may just help you use it in context when you get to your destination. italki also has files that you can download & print to study your foreign language when you're away from the internet, such as on the plane or overnight train.


That's even better than a phrasebook... I can never remember how to pronounce things properly and the phonetic guides just make matter worse!
