So you’re packed and ready to go! Congratulations! If you’re headed to a foreign country, you might want to pack a little more than your walking shoes and sunscreen. Learning or writing down a few choice phrases for travelers in the language of the country you’re visiting is never a bad thing: not only does it open up communication with locals, but learning some of these can also help you communicate in an emergency.

Below is a list of helpful phrases for travelers that can be useful when you’re having a good time or when you’re in a bit of a bind. Sit for a minute before you leave and write down the translation for each one—you never know when they can come in handy!

  1. Hello!
  2. How are you?
  3. My name is:
  4. Please / thank you
  5. Excuse me
  6. Where is the…? (restaurant, hotel, bank, hospital, bus and toilet – very important and better to learn than bathroom or restroom, because they might send you to a completely different place!)
  7. How much does this cost? (A currency converter on your phone will be a good thing to have to figure out the exchange rate.)
  8. I would like (water, coffee, beer, wine, bread) In a pinch, show them a picture of what you want on your phone!
  9. Check please!
  10. Do you take credit cards?
  11. Cheers!
  12. Help!
  13. Do you speak English?
  14. Can you speak more slowly?
  15. I don’t understand.
  16. I need help.
  17. Can you show me on the map how to get there?
  18. Please call the American Embassy.
  19. Please call the police.
  20. I need a doctor.
  21. I’m allergic to ____.
