Description of App

Have you ever been stuck in a country wanting to be polite but having no idea how to even say 'please' or 'thank you'? Or needed to get somewhere quickly but been frustrated because you couldn't even ask for basic directions in the local language?

At, we have, and so we produced a series of free language guides for adventure travelers that contain a conversational language lesson with a local, plus basic phrases to help keep you traveling safely.

These Apps are based on our existing travelers language guide podcast series that we started in 2006 & now covers 25 languages including Lao, Spanish, Indonesian, French, Japanese, Italian, Mandarin, Thai, Hindi, Arabic, Malay, Russian, German, Dutch & Nepali.

Future updates will include more phrases & functionality.

Accessibility Comments

works well. Change to character mode and flick through to read the lao words since VO will mangle them. also, clicking on the pronunciation will cause VO to speak the English over top of the Lao, so be patient, or toggle VO off.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

Discussionof the pronunciation is a little shakey, but worth it if you're just after anice starting place.
