A picture is worth a thousand words… especially when you don’t speak the language

with one comment

Came across this earlier today and wish I had come up with the idea myself. Instead of an obnoxious phrasebook with impossible to pronounce phonetic spellings, why not just point to things you need while traveling? Me No Speak thought that was a good idea and makes these cool passport-sized guidebooks that give you plenty of pictures and phrases to point to while traveling. As of now there are only three language guidebooks — for China, Japan and Thailand — but the idea is so great that I am sure we can look forward to more.

  1. Cool. This is a much more tastefully and culturally conscious example of pointing to pictures than ones I’ve seen in the past. It’s also a cool way to have a visual representation of a culture.

    Thanks!
