Having a good dictionary at hand is always a good idea.

Nowadays we obviously have many options available, for instance, apps we can download to our phones and pretty good online translation machines.

Although these translation machines are excellent for immediate understanding of the language, it doesn't compare to knowing the language yourself, so here I present to you a list of useful words that you will hear people use every day and that you may want to use too.
