Best phrases to learn

You’re leaving in a week… eek!

What are the best phrases to learn for travel?

OK… so it’s last minute, but you are going on a trip in one week.. aahh… So what travel phrases do you NEED to know and what CAN you learn in a week?

Here are my favourite and best phrases to learn for travel.

I’ve written the phrases in English 🇬🇧, Japanese 🇯🇵, Vietnamese 🇻🇳 and Chinese 🇨🇳.

This was super challenging for me!

I often type in Chinese but hardly ever in Vietnamese and this was my first time in Japanese! It is slow going! But rewarding seeing the text on my screen! 😉

Let me know in the comments what language you are learning and where you are travelling to next?
