Default English expressions/words any foreigner should know when visiting UK

Imagine a foreigner coming to UK, who doesnt speak english very well.
Now what is the most important thing, that you think, they should know to say in english.

Anything goes, except rudness, obscenities etc. :P

Really? You're gonna go at me for misspelling speak? I think my knowledge of english is pretty good considering its not my first, or even second language.

How do I get home?

Foreigners coming to UK and not speaking a word of English really are hard work... we get a lot of them at work these days, Hungarian lorry drivers. They bring things over from Belgium, and then can't even speak a word of English, not even hello some of them. Now this makes it extremely difficult to deal with, and I'm sure they feel just the same not understanding a word we're trying to tell them.

I understand why that must be frustrating. Not to mention that hungarian is nowhere close to any other language, except finnish maybe, which makes even guessing what they are saying impossible.

There is a small hungarian village close to where i live, and my dad was from there. It just amazed me how many people there still dont know any other language but hungarian, and still even refuse to learn.
