This review is from: Portuguese (Lonely Planet Phrasebook) (Paperback)
Useful phrasebook to take on holiday - with all the phrases you'll need (and many more you never thought of). If you just flick through it can be hard to find what you're looking for, but there is a useful index at the front - just remember it's at the front of the book, not the back. The essential phrases inside the front and back covers are the most useful if you're just on a short holiday, together with the 2-way dictionary (which covered all bases / shopping requirements / food allergies etc. for me). Nice and small to fit into a bag or pocket. If you like to make an effort to exchange a few words with locals in their own language and need to know all the ingredients for things you buy, it's the perfect holiday companion. ***** 5 stars.
