Essential phrases to learn in another language

With traveling comes the responsibility of making a good impression on the countries you visit. And one way of doing this is learning other languages. Here is a list of words and phrases that I have found helpful to know while traveling. A little goes a long way. Plus, knowing some basic words and phrases might help you feel comfortable in a new place.

I would like…
Can you help me
Can you write down the price
Yes/No
Hello/Goodbye
Please/Thank you
I’m sorry/Excuse me
That is okay/good
Where is the toilet/WC (this is totally different than a bathroom in most countries)
Do you speak English?
You should also know the number for how many people in your party so you can ask for a table for four, a room for two, etc.

    But this is a great list of phrases for when I take the plunge and go to Europe…
