Lonely Planet Romance Language Guides

For up to date, user friendly language phrasebooks, no one beats Lonely Planet. Their guides to everyday languages offer excellent tips for navigating most aspects of daily life. Their guides to more obscure languages claim a rightful place alongside scholarly tomes for the serious but desperate language student.

For those looking for a phrasebook/mini-dictionary, recommends Lonely Planet. Acceptable alternatives are Langenscheidt phrasebooks and Berlitz phrasebooks. We do not recommend Hippocrene Dictionary/Phrasebooks, Berlitz Dictionaries, or Dover See-it-and-Say-it guides unless they're the only resource available. Rick Steve's and Rough Guide, incidentally, are okay for tourists but not recommended for language students.
