Informazioni sull'autore

Hello! my name is Alex i am 25 and i come from the UK. I have decided to make and publish some books generally just to help people. Maybe corny maybe cliche but its true. I base my books on experiences that i have had. Real life problems ive had to deal with or overcome. My first book is a helpful phrasebook or survival guide used to navigate around popular destinations in Europe. And yes there has been two occasions when i was travelling alone and something like what i have created really would of been a life saver for me. Once in Europe and once in Russia. Both times i struggled with transportation, customs and ordering food and drink etc. So one day i sat down and dug out several old books (and some content i had from my school days) containing 4 european languages and decided to create a handy little phrase book to get you out of the type of situations i encountered, i was certain other people would experience similar issues. I also suffered from anxiety when i was younger and really would love to write a self help book mainly aimed at guys (because well i am a guy and i am basing my books on real experiences). So as an author that really is my story i want to write clear and bs free helpful guides and books for people with no fluff content. Hopefully it might help some people out there. So as a person i am the classic Englishman i enjoy watching football (soccer) drinking tea and playing golf (very english). Always had a passion for writing although i loved fantasy and wrote small books as a young teenager i think i am better suited writing factual, informational books because to put it mildly... them books were rubbish! Just a small insight into what i am about really and why i am here. I hope everybody enjoys the material i am making i work hard to make it authentic and above all simple and fluff free. Thanks.

INTRODUCTION

Welcome to the Essential European survival guide. This guide is packed full of helpful phrases to aid travelers travelling to four popular destinations in Europe. There is nothing more likely to ruin your vacation than being in a foreign country and encountering a problem. Unable to express yourself or voice a concern may lead to possible panic. This guide is intended to provide the traveler with hundreds of key phrases based around common problems that a traveler may experience. It will assist with ordering food and drinks and other day-to-day occurrences like transportation or telling the time. With the Essential European Survival Guide, you can relax in comfort knowing that you have helpful and potentially life saving phrases available at your fingertips! Phrases to aid with emergency situations, such as, medical emergencies and passport and customs issues are included, without over complicating things.

These common phrases have been put together in four different languages (French, German, Spanish and Italian) rather than buying guides for individual countries, you have the most visited European destinations all in one guide. Each language is divided into its own categories containing phrases on a particular topic. Each topic covers many situations and provides relevant information relating to situations that you may encounter when visiting one of these four non-English speaking destinations.

This guide is not going to teach you a foreign language, nor will it cover every situation, but it covers many common issues and problems. It is a no fluff guide that you can just pick up and use. With this guide you can simply show the person (waitress, doctor, customs officer) the relevant question/statement or attempt to speak it yourself, which is definitely the better option. So give it a go! Either way this guide WILL assist you with your travels and prove to be a valuable asset. Good luck and happy holidays!!
