Book Description

30 May 2008 0340915072 978-0340915073 1st

Teach Yourself Estonian is a self-access course for the independent adult learner of Estonian as a foreign language. Lively dialogues (recorded by Estonian speakers on the accompanying double CD) in authentic Estonian introduce the language, which is then explained in simple English, as it is not assumed that the student has learned a foreign language before. Exercises - written, audio, and pictorial - are used to reinforce learning. Features of the culture of Estonian speakers are also explored. At the end of the book there are a 'taking it further' section, a key to the exercises and Estonian-English and English-Estonian vocabulary lists.

This summary refers to the book. The accompanying double CD (978 0340 915097) is available separately or in a pack (978 0340 915080) with the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars good to start with 24 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
comes with a cd
it gives a general overall view of estonian grammar.
somewhat outdated when it comes to money. the new reprint will no doubt have prices in euro.
the conversations are just a means to introduce vocab. don't expect you can use them at the doctor's or in a coffee bar.
but of all the books i have gone through, this ranks very high.

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING - USELESS! 30 July 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD hoping to learn Estonian as I drove but it contains no translations! The only help you get is the title of the exercise; eg. How To Tell the Time, followed by 30 seconds of questions and replies in Estonian. If I asked someone what the time was I'd expect them to actually tell me what the time is, not spout a random reply like "it's half past four" regardless of the time of day. How is anyone supposed to learn Estonian if they're not told the meaning of what they're saying?! Why would I want to learn the words without their meaning?! If you buy this CD you NEED to buy the book that should accompany it.
Rated 1 star because I could not rate it 0
