Fifty Basic Travel Words

The Gregory Communication Sheet/Dictionary System

Back to Chapter 2 Verbal and Nonverbal Communication

To begin write on a single full-size sheet of paper the fifty basic travel words below, with translations and pronunciations in the languages you need, one sheet per language. A single sheet places everything you know in that language in front of you. This system works best when used with a pocket-sized English/That Language--That Language/English dictionary.

Try to learn a few new words every day. Write them on your sheet and keep it in a pocket. Pull it out when trying to communicate with someone, perhaps showing them the word you are trying to pronounce. Let them write on it if they want to. You may be surprised at the generous language lessons you receive, and you can always make another if they get carried away.
