After the considerable success of The Xenophobe's Guides series, which uncovers the quirks and curiosities of other nations for xenophobes (people who fear foreigners) a series of phrase books is now being launched for the 'xenolinguist' - people who are afraid of speaking a foreign tongue. When visitors are traveling abroad, they have to expect to meet foreigners. Most of these foreigners will not speak English. The Xenophobe's Phrase Books series aims to help users overcome this setback and cope with the unexpected difficulties that may arise should they need to communicate with the natives. Lose your linguistic inhibitions. Speak German in plain English. This book includes phrases like: I would like to see the manager, You mean I have to pay for the froth on the beer as well, and Do you work out, gorgeous, or is that your natural build?
