Travel Flashcards

It's color-coded, it's illustrated and most importantly, it will help you get around China, Japan and France (Italy, Spain and Mexico by 2008). Unlike other phrase books, Lingolook is made up of 75 decks of cards complete with a 75+ key words, an illustration on each deck, and three related words/phrases totaling 450 translations. It also includes a 6-card reference section with travel tips, menu readers (very important!), time/date, numbers (helpful when you're trying to read kanji) and a country map.

The cool thing about Lingolook, is that it is not limited to the passport-sized, fannable deck of cards, it also has an E-version for PDAs and the iPhone, as well as a PDF version for use in any computer.
