Word for the Travel Wise (03/09/06)
Today's word is a Maltese phrase used in Malta:
Fejn huma t-tojlezz? - Where are the toilets please?
This probably seems like a rather large step into a lang we haven't explored here at all on Gadling, but no matter how tasty the food may be let's remember it might not agree with everyone's belly and for this reason, during this time it is valuable travelers to Malta tuck this information away. If all goes well the food and wine will all be great and to relieve your regular bodily functions you'll still want to know the handy phrase.
BBC Languages Quick Fix allows one to download essential holiday phrases like this to store in your mp3 player for the big trip ahead. You can hear audio of some very basic words on their site as well. For a full run down on the history and a thorough section on survival Maltese head over to aboutmalta.com. I'm not too certain how much the survival Maltese will be needed considering the country's other official lang happens to be English and they happen to have around 40 English learning language schools.
