HERE is a rather smart use of mobile phones, a phrasebook you can download that reads out words and sentences to help you out when you are struggling with the language.
Developed by CoolGorilla the phrasebooks are available in a number of languages including French, Italian, Spanish and the example above shows the German version.
Each phrasebook costs £3 to download and because it is on the phone itself it works wherever you are so even when you have no signal you can use it.
