“ICOON” Visual Dictionary

ICOON Visual Dictionary

The seasoned traveler knows how difficult it is to communicate with locals in a country’s tongue, especially if you’re not an expert and can’t really get the pronunciation of the words and intonations down right. But don’t let language be a barrier. Instead, you can opt to get some assistance from the ICOON Visual Dictionary instead.

Containing more than 2,000 different symbols and pictures, all you need to do is find the word (or photo, in this case) in the ICOON Visual Dictionary and point it out while making some pretty simple gestures and you’ll be able to get your message across quicker than when you’re using a phrasebook.
