I did not order the accompanying tape. I have some failiarity with the Lakota language, so the book would suffice for me. The Lakota language is a beautiful language to hear. Men and women converse with different words as well as when you are addressing different sexes. Without someone to practice with, this could prove difficult to master. There are nasal influctions that must also be learned that you cannot learn from a book. If you are serious about learning the language I would suggest that you also order the audio tape as well. This is most definitely one of the best Lakota language offerings available. Wastay!
