Do you have a electronic dictionary that can do translation with sound? If so, that's will help. Otherwise, dictionary is fine. Remember the first time I have a dinner with a French colleague and speak nothing but French. I tried my best and busy with my dictionary, hand and body language. Kind of fun, great experience. Enjoy!
