This is a cool site. You can look up words and phrases in a bunch of languages (with more being added) and in addition to the text of the translations, you get audio of the (hopefully) correct pronounciations plus a cute little stick figure dramatization theatre acting out how that word or phrase might be said in a real-life situation by a real stick figure.
Haha. I loved this. Simple everyday phrases in not enough languages that would still take me ages to learn. I know it's meant to be a one of those handy little online tools to help you prepare for travel, but honestly, the little stick figures alone are such fun! I forgot all about the languages, I just liked watching the stick people. Sometimes I amaze myself at how easily pleased I am. Stick people rock. They need their own soap-opera.
I am from Philippines, and I need to learn the language of my Danish boyfriend, so I found this site and I am so happy i could speak simple Danish words and Phrases, THANK YOU SO MUCH! come on everyone, this site is very interesting! :-D ;)
I am travelling a lot for my job in Germany and wish to be more independant from my German colleagues. Even - thanks to English - I am able to understand the main subject of a document or e-mail. I'd like to be able to follow conversations and if possible participate a bit :-D I guess you did not stop to the online list - quiet complete and well done by the way - or demo version not tested yet, did you?
Thank you so much for this idea; you are helping people from all over the world to study languages they like or that they must acquire. I hope you're going to improve this initiation of yours so as to gain more succes. I wish you all the best.
Merci Beaucoup !
