Book Description

7 April 2008 Collins

With Collins Turkish Phrasebook and Dictionary you will sound and speak like a native. As the only phrasebook in the market offering an hour's worth of downloadable audio files, it's ideal for practising pronunciation, listening comprehension and becoming more confident, not just in speaking but in understanding others when abroad.

Collins Turkish Phrasebook and Dictionary is ‘four books in one’ – a photoguide, a phrasebook, a food guide containing a menu reader and a 5,000-word dictionary.

The phrases are short and easy to use. The language reflects everyday speech – there are no lengthy sentences to struggle and sweat over. The phrases have a simple guide to help with pronunciation. There are also practical tips to help you make the most of your visit abroad.
The new 4-colour layout allows easy access to key information.

Collins Turkish Phrasebook and Dictionary isn’t just for emergencies. The specially commissioned food guides describe the different regional dishes and wines. They also contain a comprehensive menu reader to guide you through the maze of menus.

The audio files cover all the essential phrases needed to get by. They are presented clearly and slowly by a native speaker and all words and phrases are repeated twice.

The listening material provides a chance to practise and learn key words and vocabulary before you embark on your travels.

Repeated listening will ensure that you will recognize much of what is said to you abroad and will give you extra confidence in your pronunciation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collins Turkish Phrasebook - Excellent Value 13 Aug 2010
For the price, this is an excellent phrasebook. I particularly like the easy-to-follow layout of the sections, and the audio download gives an idea of how to pronounce the words and phrases. A very handy size to carry.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little bit dry, but a good resource 11 July 2011
Good pocket reference, also includes a 60 minute audio download. It has a two-way dictionary and a menu reader so that you know what you're ordering! There's a small grammar section in the back with the absolute basics of constructing Turkish phrases, but don't expect it to help you express anything too complicated - there isn't enough room. Overall high quality with breakout sections to help you understand Turkish culture and laws in situations you're likely to encounter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collins Turkish Phrasebook and Dictionary 4 May 2010
This is a great little book. Does what it says on the cover. Contains useful phrases with phonetic pronunciation to help with actually speaking the phrases.
Has useful, though not huge dictionary. Overall a useful little handbook.
For some reason I have been unable to get the free 60 minute audio download so far, which would have been useful with pronunciation too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good format but a few errors 29 Feb 2012
As a teacher of Turkish and English, I found this book to have a good, user-friendly format, liked the use of images and photos, but it has a few errors in translation. However it's small and pocket-sized, and useful for the tourist or traveller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I was having trouble with a few bits and pieces on my Rosetta Stone course, and the answers to all of my questions were in here! It really is a gem of a book, and has helped immensely. Contains far more than a standard dictionary, and could well be a one-stop book for holidays. Price was very good too!
