I came across a great idea online recently.

I stumbled upon www.menugraphic.com which have invented somthing they call Pocket food guides. What they are, are pocket size pull out cards with pictures of the most common parts of meal (chicken, beef etc) and next to them appears a number of different words that represents that food item in a foreign language!

sounds like a great idea to me.  I've order the special off pack which consists of german, spanish, French and Italian for a discount price.  Personally i've always feared going to another country because of the language barrier and eating out is one of those things that worries me the most!

I noticed they also do menu companions for restaurant owners which are along the same concept but are A4 menu companions to help waiters deal with tourists who don't speak their native language (and apparently end up having to do impressions of a chicken or so to get  a point across).

sounds like a great idea to me.

Generally english is spoken in shops and reasturants in most countries you will be visiting.
I am in prague at the moment and I dont speak a word of the language, yet I have shooped, gone out at night, ordered meals, etc.
Nice idea but probably not as necessary as you think.

i tall depends on  the places you go to tho.  The  bigger places do have a few people that speak english, but  all the little villages etc don't usually.
