July's Phrases

Dave has kindly agreed to offer us the benefit of his linguistic skills (again) with some really useful phrases which you can learn. Try to practice saying them out loud to strangers you meet - it’s a great way to make new friends and impress people!

Dave does stress, that it is crucially important to practice these regularly in public so that you can easily recall them at will. It never looks good having to resort to your phrase book.
