It’s surprising, how saying a simple everyday word in a local language can affect the person in front of you and lead to something totally unexpected…
Whether it’s a few day trip to an uninhabited island, invitation to a traditional ceremony, having dinner with a local family or training roosters…
While learning Indonesian, the good old notebook got replaced with a bigger and stronger one. When our family or friends visited us, we were asked again and again, how do you say “Hello” or “Thank you” in Indonesian?
Dictionaries and phrase book are often a bit bulky and have too much content for a tourist. If I go on a 1-2 week holiday, I don’t personally feel the need to learn a lot of expressions or to carry them with me just in case. I would like to use a few basic words to be polite, ask the bill in restaurant and more or less understand the menu, ask a souvenir price at a shop or market and maybe a few more things…
That’s how the mission to retain my fragile sacred notebook begun. After a couple of months of experimenting, the first Kruts Language Cards were between the binding rings!
Compact, easy to use and travel proof format: it’s alright, if the cards get sandy or wet
Practical words and phrases: intended for travellers going on a 1-2 week holiday
Interesting information about the destination: hopefully you will discover something new about your destination
All the pronunciations are recorded with a native speaker: you can hear the real language and will avoid accidentally saying something too “extravagant”
This is definitely not the end of the Kruts story! We have many ideas and new Language Cards will keep coming.
Until then we wish you frisky trips!
