Essential and appreciated language phrases

Postby stevesayskanpai » Tue Jul 17, 2018 10:09 pm

Hi all,

I'm about to finally depart for my month long trip to Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, and was wondering if people who know these countries well have any advice about language.

I'm aware that I can easily find out essential phrases such as 'thank you' from guidebooks (a word which seems pretty much identical in all three languages?), but I was wondering if there are any recommended phrases to learn in each language - or terms/phrases that people appreciated hearing.

As I don't speak Russian I feel as though I might as well make as much effort with the three languages as possible, rather than learning Russian essential phrases!

I cannot really think of anything that you would need to know. Know that Gtranslate has all 3 languages and does a pretty good job of translating.
