Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) June 24, 2009 -- Travelinsurancedirect.com.au introduces free mp3 phrase books: Lessons designed to help Australian holidaymakers have the best possible holiday - by learning the local lingo!
Australians travellers should familiarise themselves with the local language before they go on overseas holidays, says Ian Jackson, General Manager of Australiaâs leading online travel insurance retailer, TravelInsuranceDirect.com.au.
âKnowing a few key phrases of the local language is insurance against bad holidays,â says Ian. âBeing able to count to 100 in the local language, ask for directions to a hotel or just being familiar with a few local foodstuffs makes a massive difference to the quality of a holiday.â The audio phrase books are a simple way to absorb the short language lessons at oneâs leisure
Ian added that he believes it is important for Australian tourists to learn at least a few key phrases before they travel overseas.
âItâs just plain rude to visit another country without being able to say âThank Youâ in the local language,â he says.
Other phrases essential to master before you visit another country are: â¢ May I please have the bill? â¢ Where is the bathroom? â¢ How much does this cost? â¢ Excuse me; â¢ I love you.
âSpending a little bit of time to master these phrases will make you a better ambassador for Australia and help you have a better holiday,â Ian says. âWe hope our language guides will help travellers to have a better experience on their holiday, they are short, simple & easy to access on your ipod or other media playerâ
