Good news, the Google Translate app is apparently pretty effective and can even translate images based on a photo.

Bad news, Duolingo doesn't actually seem very effective for learning a new language. But I can bark out single words that will allow me to order beer, wine, coffee, tea, water, bread and potatoes in German.

@ink_slinger just roam the streets barking Kartoffel! at the top of your lungs, someone will come whisk you away to a facility where they will provide for your needs.

@allan Look, if I do it in Trier they might whisk me off to the Kartoffel Restaurant, which is exactly what it sounds like and definitely on the list of places I want to eat because, honestly, who wouldn't want to eat at a restaurant devoted to potatoes?
