Globetrotter's "In Your Pocket" series features easy-to-use phrase books complemented by two-way dictionaries. Each book includes a section on etiquette that gives a few pointers on the customs and manners of the people in question - in this case, the Germans - together with information on the differences between some of the nations that speak the language. The phrase book section offers enough basic grammar to get you talking, and understanding, the language, together with a handy guide to pronunciation. It is arranged by subject matter, and features useful phrases for specific situations. The categories are: booking hotel accommodation; ordering a meal in a restaurant; shopping and managing money matters; transport options; sightseeing and activities; and matters of health and safety. The dictionary is divided into English to German, and German to English and the books are colour coded and enhanced by illustrations.
