Me No Speak

When you can’t say it, point to it.

As world travelers, we know the difficulties that arise when you’re in a foreign country and don’t speak the language ((Such as finding a toilet in time, getting cold medicine, or reporting a lost, black wallet)). Our experiences inspired us to found Me No Speak and publish language companions that break the mold of traditional phrase books, which often fall short of being helpful ((They are clunky to use and require massive scanning to find the thing you want; they also waste your time with small talk—if you have no language skills, a phrase book will not help you engage in a conversation of less than 12 hours)). While we believe travelers should attempt the language of their destination, sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words.
