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?

Think of the phrases you use daily when out in public. Learn how to greet people, apologize, and "excuse me." You should also learn how to order food, ask for directions, and ask if they know how to speak English. I think learning how to ask if someone speaks English is the most important phrase to learn because it's extremely rude to go up to someone in a foreign country and immediately speak English to them.
