Details

A common malady of visitors to China is "instant illiteracy." In China, familiar signs in English are rare. Even the independent spirit soon learns that without language skills one requires help to engage in the most basic activities. The Pocket Interpreter makes it possible for adventurers to enjoy some rewarding experiences on their own.
In a bright, easy format with humorous drawings for popular expressions, The Pocket Interpreter is a quick cure for language woes in China.
