survival means "something which will keep you alive". Survival in "Survival Guide" is figurative (like a metaphor). It doesn't mean that it is a matter of life or death but it means that it is very important. So, Survival Guide means that which will help you explain yourself at least in a basic way in English (for example: ask where the bathroom is, ask what time it is, ask for directions etc.).
