Product Description

Review

"A great little idea" -- The Sunday Telegraph

"We love them" -- Woman

"a novel solution... for communicating with folk from other lands" -- The Guardian

"ditch cumbersome dictionaries and phrase books" -- The Independent on Sunday

Synopsis

The quick and simple way of communicating in a foreign language on the move. Phrasebooks can be bulky, difficult and slow to use, with a phonetic system that is rarely understood. What makes these cards unique is the way you use them. Instead of looking up complete phrases, you tailor-make your own using the words on the cards. Pigeon cards are discreet and they look like postcards. Three tough 110x165mm laminated cards with a wraparound cover. They come as a single strip, perforated and consortia folded into a resealable polypropylene bag.

Nice idea in principle - but what a wasted opportunity not using both sides of the card. Expensive for what it is and not enough on to be much use - the info could have been doubled up. What a shame.

What a wonderful idea! All the really useful words and phrases you will need to get you through your holiday, in an extremely handy format. This fits easily into a handbag or pocket and weighs nothing. I used the Spanish one last year so had no hesitation on buying the Italian one for me and the French one for my daughter for this year's holidays.

I love these Pigeon Cards (also available in Spanish, German and French)
They cover all the simple stuff and don't really worry about grammar or complex sentence structure.
So very quickly you can be talking extremely bad, but understandable, Italian.
Not for the language scholar, or experienced traveller who takes language lessons. But for a first trip or short trip, you'll be using more of the language and better (and more polite) than the majority of British tourists straight away.
