5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, Good Seller 2 Aug 2012
By Barney
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Book and Cds were quickly dispatched and well packaged, arriving before the estimated delivery time in perfect condition.
The product itself is excellent. After just a week, I had a basic grasp of the language, understanding, and being able to pronounce a basic vocabulary.
The book teaches basic phrases, but in a way that helps you to understand, instead of simply being a phrasebook.
Excellent product to help beginners to speak, understand, and write Bahasa Melayu.

1.0 out of 5 stars total waste of money 24 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video|Verified Purchase
I've just purchased this item, and have just learnt that I cant access to the audio. I am asking now, what the hell'd be the purpose of buying this crap if you cannot listen to the audios?
And it cannot even be returned in hope of a refund, what a bloody rip off. Keep away from Kindle!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money 4 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very well designed course. It honestly presents the pitfalls of self-study and gives helpful solutions for keeping the student on course and progressing. The pronunciation part is clear and understandable and the native speakers make this an excellent way to learn Bahasa.

I love the structure of this course. Each chapter contains a few lessons, and each lesson is broken down into bite-size portions. As it says in the book, you can learn something useful in 1 minute, or 10 minutes. The audio accompaniment is different from other courses I've come across. It's very different from the usual "listen and repeat" with lots of pauses. Many of the lessons in the book have a conversation passage about a page long, with a vocabulary. The audio has the conversation without breaks and explanations. Personally I find it a very different and much faster way to learn. Many of the audio chapters end with an "Over to you" section where there ARE breaks, and also questions and variations on the conversation where you must respond in both English and in Malay which aids both comprehension and recall. The only criticism I would have of the book is that there is no summary of affixes (although they are explained throughout the text). This is the best language course I've come across.(out of 4 languages spread over about 8-10 different online courses and books). Top notch!
