I’m studying abroad in a country where I don’t speak the language, but I’m trying to learn some of the basics before I go. What are some of the most important or useful phrases to know?

Make sure you know the words/phrases for exchanging pleasantries, ordering food in restaurants, directional terms, and, most importantly, how to ask for help. In addition, you want to know how to ask basic questions (i.e. where the bathroom is) and also you want to be able to somewhat communicate with professors who may not speak great English (i.e. how to ask about grades, deadlines, assignments, etc.).
