Product Description

Do you want to be able to listen to, speak, read and write Afrikaans confidently? Do you want the convenience of being able to learn at home or on the move? Whether you are starting from scratch, or are just out of practice, Teach Yourself Complete Afrikaans – Touch & Listen will guarantee success!

Touch & Listen ebooks are a groundbreaking new approach to language learning that include recordings of pronunciation and conversations within the pages of the books themselves – right where you need them.

In the past you used to have to juggle separate books and CDs/MP3s to master listening, speaking, reading and writing. Not anymore. Thanks to the latest enhanced ebook technology, you can learn and practise all four language skills plus grammar and vocabulary from a single ebook that you can read and listen to on your tablet device or smartphone. First, touch the on-screen play buttons and listen to native speakers conversing on scores of current topics. Then rewind. Or pause. Whatever you need to do to make sure you’ve fully understood what you have just listened to. When you are ready, complete the activities with the convenient notes feature. You are in control. It’s that simple.

STRUCTURE  The course is structured in thematic units based on real-life situations and with an emphasis on communication, so that you effortlessly progress from introducing yourself and dealing with everyday situations, to using the phone and talking about work.

NOT MUCH TIME?  Get started with a 1-minute introduction to the key principles of the language.

GRAMMAR  Follow easy-to-manage steps to give you a clear understanding of the language.

VOCABULARY  Use clearly marked lists to make it easy to find and review the most useful vocabulary.

DIALOGUES  Touch & Listen to everyday dialogues to help you speak and understand fast.

PRONUNCIATION  Don't sound like a tourist! Perfect your pronunciation before you travel.

INSIGHTS  Look out for lots of instant help with common problems and quick tips for success, based on the author’s many years of teaching experience.

FEATURES  Make full use of the wealth of convenient ebook features, including highlighting, making notes and a built-in dictionary.

PROGRESS  Rise to Level B1 of the Common European Framework for Languages: Can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. Can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions.

TEST YOURSELF Use the unit tests to keep track of your progress.

Teach Yourself Complete Afrikaans

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good enough by a long shot! 18 Dec 2011
By adam
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD along with "Teach yourself ZULU", approximately 45 pounds for the both(Just over i think) Like both CD's, they both came WITHOUT the course book, which is essential and totally PART of the language excercises, without it you CANNOT follow the course. So from the beginning i was stuck, it was HOPELESS WITHOUT the course book. For approximately 22 pounds for each CD(which is far too much), i found that the person who was translating the "Teach yourself Afrikaans" was not even an Afrikaans speaker, but worse than that they were not(as far as i could determine from my previous experience of speaking Afrikaans) even translating the correct meanings from the Afrikaans excercises on the CD. I did not try out the "Teach yourself Zulu" fully yet, but it's obviously by the same company(CD covers are the same) So i assume it will have the same problems, as it also came without a course book. I found the 2 CD's a COMPLETE waste of money and time, a big dissapointment. I also discovered that other language CD's from other well known companies that i won't mention here cost as little as 2 pounds and 49 pence, including delivery! Some even less than 2 pounds! I even tried a couple of these 2 pound AFRIKAANS CD's from other companies and found they had a much larger and more comprehensive collection of vocabulary!
Don't buy these items, they are far too expensive and without the course book you won't learn a thing! The excercises are rushed through very quickly and this CD is not for beginners, you have to have a reasonable level of afrikaans in order to follow the CD, and without the course book you have to guess what is going on. As well as this there are not enough excersises on the CD, it is far too short. For approx. 22 pounds i expected a large selection of afrikaans excersises, but there were very little! A waste of money big time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy without the audio 25 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Afrikaans is a language with a particularly rich sound inventory. Do not presume that you can learn to speak it from the text alone. Along with the audio this is a very nicely written book and given that Afrikaans is relatively easy you will get good results
