Tears mingle with sweat. Your head is caught in the cloud of steam rising from your noodle soup. Your mouth burns the fire of a thousand chillies. You rub your eyes only to feel your chilli-laden fingertips sear through them. As you sit gasping the heavy air of Hanoi, you wish you could remember how to say 'Please bring me a glass of water'. This book coupled with your wits is the first step in any exciting travel adventure, it includes - simple yet concise Grammar chapter geared towards practical use; - special section for returning Vietnam veterans; - clear pronunciation system; - packed with information on protocol and etiquette; - talk your way onto any form of transport and even try deciphering the taxi driver's banter; - comprehensive two-way dictionary.
