If you want to never be at a loss for words on your trip to Italy, a little help from Lonely Planet and your iPhone will help you lick the local lingo. Lonely Planet now offers its ten most popular phrasebooks in downloadable audio format, specifically tailored to make the most of your iPhone. With other 600 spoken (and phonetically written) phrases in each guide, you can shop, socialize, and shout like a native.

Editors' Review

by   / November 08, 2008

Mastering even superficial niceties in a foreign language can be hard work, especially if you're unaware how accents, characters, and syllables are actually pronounced. Lonely Planet's collection of audio phrasebooks include the foreign spelling, transliteration, and audio playback of phrases commonly used to find out about transportation, money, dining, and so on. Be prepared to field enthusiastic answers on your own, though (I'd like to see some translation for "would you pantomime that, please?")

More customization features would endow the application with greater usefulness by offering a choice of male or female voice and speed settings to accommodate different audio learners. And travelers with digital cameras will have a hard time seeing the subsection on film photography as anything but outdated. Despite these few peccadilloes, the application gives travelers a quick, easy way to acquire some reasonably accurate communication skills for their travels. And at the very least, slower studies having trouble reproducing the sounds can just hold the iPhone up to a local and let Lonely Planet do the talking.
