Synopsis

Featuring pronunciation, a menu guide, a mini-dictionary, hotel information, and emergency phrases.

Craving a caffeine kick while visiting Moscow? Simply turn to the restaurant section of this practical phrase book and say to the waiter, "Prosta chashkoo kof-ye, pazhalsta." (Just a cup of coffee, please.) Starting with a comprehensive overview of the Russian (Cyrillic) alphabet and the pronunciation of each letter, this clear and easy-to-use phrase book lists words and phrases are spelled out in the letters of the Russian alphabet, but are accompanied by a modified version of the standard system of romanization--the way Russian characters would appear in our alphabet. From restaurant menus to railway stations, words commonly found on signs are listed and translated. Break the language barriers as you travel through Russia by taking along this terrific phrase book. Whether you're trying to order dinner or get back to your hotel, you cannot make your way without knowing what to say, and the Eyewitness Travel Guide Phrase Books are the perfect guide for tongue-tied tourists. These compact, user-friendly books fit right into your pocket or purse, and meet the communications needs of the tourist and business traveler alike. Based on an innovative system of imitated pronunciation, phrases are organized into logical and practical divisions, including time; food and drink; air travel; bus, taxi, and subway information; shopping; health and medical care; and much more. Typical replies to questions you may be asked, as well as signs and instructions you're likely to see or hear, are also given. The guides also include a carefully selected mini-dictionary, and useful conversion tables translating distance, clothing sizes, and weight.
