I brought this book along with another book and set of tapes that was really expensive, the lonely planet phrasebook has turned out so much more usefull, I have been writing to a nepalese person with the books help. It is cheep, full of usefull info and set out really well with loads of tips on culture and stuff too. A MUST.

Format: Paperback
The book gives an interesting introduction to what you should expect in Nepal. It also has a section on the grammer of the language. However, there is a lack of phonectic translations to aid pronounciation, so this doesn't help someone who speaks no Nepali at all. The sections are not labelled in a way that makes the book easy to use. It is difficult to find particular words, even though the book itself suggests pointing to words if you are stuck when talking to someone. The size however is ideal, and hints are given within each section about how to behave in certain situations.

I brought quite a few books to learn nepali and found this tiny book to be crammed full of info, easy to thumb through with a dictionary in the back, fits in any pocket, this book is a must for... (the price)...you can't go wrong!

Format: Paperback
The book is OK. The size is handy and the grammar chapter is quite a good overview to help you construct your own sentences rather than rely on the ones provided. The phrases and words given are pretty useful. The major problem for me is that, being aimed at spoken Nepali, it provides the Devanagari script and a phonetic pronunciation guide, but not a Romanized Nepali equivalent (yes, I know there's no standard Romanization ...) It's therefore of limited use for reading or writing Romanized Nepali in emails, signs and so on, and it's surprising how often you need to do this. It would have been so helpful to have had both. Still good value for the price though, even with this criticism.

I gave this to my girlfriend as a present and she absolutely loves it. I am Nepali so my girlfriend wanted to learn my language. I got it for her to help her with that. I realised after I bought it that it is designed for prospective tourists who are going to Nepal. So it mostly contains touristy phrases like "where's the taxi stand?" etc. But nevertheless it has a lot of useful stuff for people who are looking to learn Nepali for other purposes as well. Can't go wrong esp. at this price.

I liked this book. I bought it originally for my friend who went to Nepal for a month, but I also had a look at it. His experience was that the book was very useful and because it fits into your pocket you can take it everywhere with you. So whenever you need it you just take it out of your pocketand use it. The content was also good and useful. I recommend this book if you want to travel there and need a small book with you.

this book is ok if you want the basics like greetings,shopping and asking simple directions on the trail.i had fun trying it out in nepal where english is almost universally understood on the tourist trail. however it was kinda nice asking for dwee karlo chia hoina chinnee two black teas no sugar and getting what you asked for

I have several nepalese friends and so I decided it was time to make an effort to learn real nepalese and not just the odd word, this book enabled me to do this and was small enough to be portable. Although some of the cultural references seem inaccurate the language teaching skills are invaluable.
