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

From the Author

The new way of communicating in a foreign language
Pigeon in the press

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

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

"such a good idea" The London Evening Standard

"tidy and childproof...worth the price" The Observer

"worry no longer... about the embarrassing language barrier... with Pigeon cards you will be able to give a friendly chirp, with minimum effort" The Express

"real face-savers to a non-linguist...making communication a great deal more comfortable than a phrase book" Books in the Media

Phrase books can be bulky, difficult and slow to use, with a phonetic spelling system that is rarely understood. Pigeon cards are discreet - they look like postcards - and contain most of the words and phrases a typical holiday-maker might need when out and about.

What makes Pigeon cards unique is the way you use them. Instead of looking up complete sentences via an index through subjects to a situation, you tailor make your own phrases using the words on the cards. A typical sentence could be made up from just a few elements eg:

"Can I have... coffee... with milk?"

Begin with "hello" and end with "please" and you’ve placed your order before your companion has found the right page in their phrase book. With only three Pigeon cards you can order drinks, make sense of a menu, and find your way around the shops.

Available in Spanish, Italian and French. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This is in the form of a fold-out card containing 2 explanation pages and three further perforated cards that can be separated for ease of use. It will be most useful to people with no knowledge of French. The way it is written is aimed at people who want to be able to say basic phrases that actually sound right! The words are written phonetically, exactly as they should sound, and not written in French. For example, "sil vous plait" (please) is spelt "sil-voo-play" and "merci" (thank you) is spelt "mersee". Brilliant idea, and also no cheating and pointing at the word, beacause a French person may not understand it. The only downside, is that if you do have a smattering of French it can be very confusing not seeing the proper spellings, but a good mind-jogger even so. As long as you just want to say phrases and not write them it's great. Small, but perfectly formed.

I do not understand why these Pigeon cards which I discovered years ago, are not more popular? This is a really, really good idea. The card is excellent in all ways. It looks hardwearing and the phrases are great.
This seller delivered in good time. Well packaged. Dare I say, perfect.
