LANGUAGES ARE TRICKY, and as no one here at Matador is yet fluent in 50 languages, I reached out to native speakers around the world. From our own editors to tourism bureaus to hostels around the world, this is our collection of how to ask for “one more beer, please” in 50 languages.

* Remember to use these responsibly — in some countries, drinking is illegal. There may also be some regional and formality variations in pronunciation, but these should get the job done!
