I am looking for the first 50 or 100 sentences/words that an English-only-speaking tourist would learn when staying in a non-English-speaking country for a few weeks.

For instance, the first few words would probably be translations of "Hello" and "Thanks" then maybe numbers and survival sentences like "Where are the toilets?", then maybe transportation/time/colours/local food.


  • Must have the word in local script, the English meaning, and pronunciation in either IPA or English such as asah-lomu ah-lay-koom or both.
  • Must be freely reusable, as I intend to transform this data into flashcards and redistribute them (freely under the same license)
  • At least 30 languages, the more the better.
