Have you ever been stuck in a country wanting to be polite, but not even knowing the word for ‘please’? Or been frustrated when you couldn’t ask for the most basic directions to where you’re going?

The folks WorldNomads.com have, and so they’ve produced a series of free language guides for adventure travelers that contain a conversational language lesson with a local, plus about 40 basic phrases with audio, and over 100 useful phrases without audio, to help keep you traveling safely! Check out their series of podcast language guides here. They are yours to download for free and contain all the essential phrases to keep you travelling safely! Moreover, World Nomads has since started rolling out their language guides as iPhone applications, which are now available for on the Apple iTunes app store.

#1 free language Apps for iPhone

Over 2 million people have downloaded World Nomads audio language guides and now these great resources for travellers have been rebuilt for the iPhone, too. In fact, MSNBC recently rated the WorldNomads.com language guide series the #1 freebie language App for iPhones. They write:

Most of what a tourist needs to understand is covered, including key words (such as “please” and “thank you”), numbers up to 10, and a few phrases useful in transportation (“Where is your ticket?”); lodging (“Too expensive!”); and safety (“Stop, thief!” and everybody’s favorite “Those drugs aren’t mine!”). There’s also a Language Lesson feature in which all of the phrases are strung together in a short audio skit of a “typical tourist situation,” complete with background sound effects.
