Do you speak European? :)

No, it's not another joke! I've discovered useful phrases on Fodor's: french, german, italian, spanish

http://www.fodors.com/language/

I see language questions sometimes on Fodor's and hop this will help somebody. Found this URL while looking for useful phrases in Spanish.

Thanks, Faina. After going to the link to play around with Spanish, I came across

Es éste el camino a Madrid?

which reminds me of the movie The Mexican as Senor Brad drives an Ellll Caminooooo. So, That's my movie for the evening!

Sorry, I'm easily entertained today!
Gracias, Faina!

Faina - It is a very useful site. I have French and Italian dictionaries so I can learn the basics but it will be easier to print out some of the pages and take with me on my trip to Italy/Paris instead of hauling around my books.

I've tried a few phrases in Italian or Spanish and was even understood. I just couldn't understand the answer.

Pig latin in French is verlan, taking the first syllable and placing it at the end.
