Word for the Travel Wise (04/21/06)

Turkey FlagEarlier today I gave a brief mention to Rough Guides phrasebooks which I just
stumbled upon and still strikes me as odd when I’ve been to their site so many times in the past. Were my eyes not
open? Did I not care? In any event I decided to bring them up again for this evening’s travel word session. If you took
note I said the publishers offer a tasty piece of language audio to feast your ears upon in their online catalog. FREE
language learning audio is like finding treasure folks, so when you discover a resource to learn even one or two words
for FREE you must and I do mean must jump on the opportunity to enhance your multi-lingual dictionaries.

Today’s word is a Turkish phrase used in Turkey:

iyi yolculuklar – have a good
trip

site. Membership is free and you’ll get a lot more than some of the basics they already have listed. Online Turkish is good too, but you’ll have to register and pay to get
anything more than hello, how are you and I love you. Stick to the first site and check out this Turkish vocabulary list of body parts. Wiki has an excellent
starters piece on background, history and a short list of words. Scope out phrasebooks from Rough Guides, Lonely Planet or grab both.
