At some point during our travels, we’ve all resorted to comical gestures and weird hand motions in fruitless attempts to communicate with a local. Even more so in regions where symbols accompany the language.
A clever (and creative!) series designed by Cheryn Flanagan and Benjamin Kolowich, the Me No Speak guides are picture books for adults with drawings of common, day-to-day items like cash, water, and transportation.
They also provide common phrases that will “help you eat, sleep, & get around… without bumbling your way through a hard-to-speak language” in a handy little pocket-sized book.
