Product Description


Amazon customer reviews of Collins Gem Phrasebooks:

“They are easily navigable with colour coding for different sections. My favourite bit, though – which I couldn't do without – is the awesome menu reader! They're really discreet for bringing out at the dinner table, pretty much fitting in your hand, and avoiding the truly obvious tourist look!”

“Easy to use, very light to carry and the food dictionary in the middle of the book is a life saver when your waiter doesn't speak english. A must have.”

“Much smaller than the usual Berlitz guides but equally useful.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, compact and relevant 11 Feb 2013
By James Bury TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Took this for my first visit to Greece. It's absolutely excellent - compact, pocketable, visually appealing, full of relevant phrases, and an excellent mini-dictionary too. Used it lots and found it particularly handy for deciphering menus. Can't fault it at all, and found it a genuinely helpful book.

Somewhat useful on holiday, but lacking on many occasions. Fits easily in pocket though. Includes most words and phrases you are likely to need in general conversation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Travellers Must 8 Nov 2013
By h2o_b
Verified Purchase
I'm a great fan of always taking a phrasebook when traveling abroad, even if my attempts bring more smiles first than replies. This Collins Greek Phrasebook was great for me to learn Greek and build up some relationships with the Greek people we met. You certainly don't need this book all the time because many Greeks know the English language well but it just gives you that little bit extra and allows you to respect the culture you are visiting. Thank you Collins
