How to Ask

When you're in a foreign country it's important to be aware of the nearest bathroom's location. To help you, we've listed how to ask for the toilet in almost every language there is. Even if you don't feel confident speaking the language, you can always discreetly show someone the phrase on your phone.

If you happen to speak any of these languages, and have any suggestions on how to improve the phrasing, please submit your edits to our Facebook Comments page. We appreciate your help.

An ideal stool looks like a torpedo – it should be large, soft, fluffy and easy to pass.

Dr. Foxx-Orenstein, president of the American College of Gastroenterology
There is nothing more natural than pooing. Everyone does it, sometimes several times a day. It doesn't matter if you are young or old, rich or poor, a queen or the president... Even the Pope needs to take a poo. Please visit often to analyze your poo.
