The joy of traveling to cities unknown overseas is breathtaking, exciting and a little fearsome all at the same time. The people in that same country may speak your native tongue, or they might speak something totally different of which you have absolutely no knowledge. myLanguage Phrasebooks keeps you calm, cool and collected when you travel, as it helps you get the point across when you speak with others of a different nationality. You can either play the phrase for the other person to hear, or attempt to speak it yourself. myLanguage Phrasebooks is the only talking phrasebook to combine multiple phrasebooks into one single app, thus being cost efficient, while providing you with key phrases spoken in high quality audio.

- On-device phrasebooks do not require data connections
- 11 phrasebooks: Afrikaans, Arabic, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish
- High Quality audio spoken by native speakers, ensuring the greatest chance to be understood
- Smart search to phrases at your fingertips
- User requested phrases, real-life, practical phrases
- Sample all phrasebooks for free, purchase what you need
- Learn the language as you use the phrasebook
- Add more phrases via In-App Purchase (Network Connection Required)

Language phrases are available with 2 to 4 phrases in the following categories: Accommodation, Dining, Emergency, Greetings, Medical, Money Matters, Travel, and Useful. Phonetic spelling is not provided in languages such as Greek and Arabic, but the audio pronunciation will take care of this. I would actually like to see phonetic spelling so I can better process the language, as well as have around 10 phrases available. It's fun to use myLanguage Phrasebooks as you hear the correct pronunciations spoken by a native speaker. Furthermore, you will find phrases that are actually useful. A language barrier can be the most frustrating and detrimental thing when you travel. It can take the pleasure out of your trip and perhaps spoil a business meeting. Don't let those things happen to you when you can enjoy the ease and convenience of spoken phrases at all times. Next to your passport, myLanguage Phrasebooks is the language app you want to have handy on your phone, tucked securely in your pocket!
