The German SpeakOut guide combines a dictionary, menu decoder, and phrasebook in one durable, pocket-sized package, with color photos throughout. Written by native speakers in an accessible, easy-to-understand style, it introduces Germany and her people and provides entertaining insights into the varied delights of German cuisine. Readers learn how to follow a menu in German, order local specialties like bratwurst in Frankfurt or rollmop herrings along the northern coast, and sample a range of beers and piquant white wines. Dialogue boxes throughout the two-way dictionary ensure that travelers can deal with every situation, from changing a tire to making a doctor's appointment. In addition, two PopOut phrase menus provide instant access to 200 essential phrases on eating, shopping, traveling, and sightseeing, and a light-up pen in the spine can be used on notes pages at the back of the dictionary.
