If your intention is to learn to speak Maltese, just don't buy this book since it won't be helpful at all. It is more a grammar than a language course and it would be ideal for those who have already learnt the basics of Maltese and wish to have a grammatical reference whenever they hesitate about the language rules. Very few exercises and quizes, and not useful at all in which concerns to learning Maltese, no dialogues in the whole book, and very "hard" explanations about the language. I gave it one star because of its cover, which is the only nice thing in the book. If you're looking for a good language course in order to learn Maltese, my recommendation is to buy "Beginning Maltese", by Lydia Sciriha (University Of Malta).
