Posted Thu Nov 7, 2013, 8:48pm Subject: Language Help
I'm a manager at a small shop in Lexington, Kentucky. Since we have a major university here we have customers from a number of countries. While they all speak English well, I would like to start interacting with some of them in their own language.
This doesn't seem too hard, as most of the drink specific vocabulary (latte, mocha, cappucino, etc.) is the same language-to-language and outside of those words we deal with a fairly constrained vocabulary.
Is there a resource out that that anyone knows of that provides food service / coffee terms and phrases in a number of languages? I'd like to start with Russian (which I'm learning anyway) but would also be interested in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
