This may be meant for children but it's also a cute, easy-to-use traveler's introduction to polite phrases and a basic vocabulary. Pictures identify the words and they are used in very simple sentences at the bottom of the page. It's cleverly designed to teach something of sentence structure and word order without a single grammar lesson. This would be fun for an adult to use before tackling a Berlitz or other phrasebook. It's pocket size. I think it would also be great for its intended audience, making it easy and fun for a child to acquire a basic grasp of another language.
