A Linguanaut is a surfer in the language sea, just like an Astronaut in the outer space. The word came from Latin: [lingua: language + nauticus: sailor].
Linguanaut.com is a website designed to help people surf, discover and learn new languages by familiarizing themselves first with basic phrases and sentences that might be very useful for a first time conversation & for easy yet important expressions.
Mastering a language is not necessary to be able to communicate with natives of that specific language, basic words sometimes may do it, so if:
-You don’t have enough time and patience to learn new languages especially if you’re in a short vacation to a foreign county.
-You want to impress one of your friends whose native language is not English.
-You want to have a general idea about a language before learning it.
