These 400 expressions for travelers have been selected with care. They have been divided into 17 topics, corresponding to different situations that you may encounter in everyday life.

Natural speaking voices, original illustrations, comprehension quizzes and an audio facility are just some of the many features that help you to memorize rapidly, and make the app enjoyable to use.

Equally, this app is ideal for those who wish to start learning a foreign language, and who want to use this as their first language course to make real progress very quickly.

The expressions given in each language are not literal translations from another language; they are the expressions that would normally be used in particular situations that people find themselves in when traveling. The translators, all of whom are professionals, have not always chosen the grammatically closest translation, because that would not necessarily be the one used most often when you’re there!

Here’s a very simple example: in French, the phrase ‘please’ is often used when making a request, but it’s quite different in Finnish and in most of the Asian languages.

Translating is essentially a question of personal choice: if you feel that another translation would be more appropriate than the one suggested by this app, please write to us directly using contact form here, or better still via the contact page on our website www.loecsen.com.

We make every effort to ensure that the content we provide is as authoritative as possible.

Perfect tool to learn the essentials, inc pronunciation

Just starting to use the application on my iPhone, works just like the web version, but fantastic to have it available wherever I go. This is mostly to learn how to say essential travel vocabulary, with good division by essentials, food, transportation etc. I'm using it for Vietnamese, great pronunciation, and love the quiz section which allows to test myself. Also a cool study option to remind you when to revise.

The girl I fell in love with, the girl who fell in love with me is my Vietnamese princess. She speaks very little English.....now because of this great app, I am able to respect and honor her and speak some of her native tongue!! We now have another language other than the unspoken language of true love...

Great Moroccan Arabic app

I love this app! It is super accessible and has a wealth of useful phrases. I wish there were speed and repetition options, and some of the text doesn't line up with what the audio says so that's confusing. Only 1/20 though so nothing you have to muddle through. Very practical well designed app.
