Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Amazon customer reviews of Collins Gem Phrasebooks: They are easily navigable with colour coding for different sections. My favourite bit, though - which I couldn't do without - is the awesome menu reader! They're really discreet for bringing out at the dinner table, pretty much fitting in your hand, and avoiding the truly obvious tourist look! Ideal as a quick reference guide split in to logical topics. The pronunciation support really helps too. I have managed to string a few words together already and have been understood. Much smaller than the usual Berlitz guides but equally useful.
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
