1.0 out of 5 stars Tamil may be a difficult language... 24 Sept. 2003
By A Customer
but there's no need to attempt to teach the basics this badly -
Some basic words and phrases are covered, but in my view some of the pronounciation needed to be broken down - the sounds are very different to English. And what on earth is the point of providing a printable picture dictionary in the Tamil script only?
Maybe this format works for certain languages (the praise on the blurb can't be invented, can it?), but here it fails abysmally.

1.0 out of 5 stars Almost unusable 11 Dec. 2007
I agree with the previous reviewer. Absolutely pointless to give the written forms only. The Tamil writing system is extremely complex and difficult. The sounds of Tamil are also very difficult for a native English speaker. Transliteration should have been provided throughout. Forcing all languages in this 'Talk Now!' series into the same mould (i.e. providing visual information only in the writing system of the respective language) is a big mistake, because whilst it may be fine for French, Slovene, Swahili and so on, it's certainly not fine for languages with unfamiliar and complex writing systems. If you want to learn some Tamil, get 'Colloquial Tamil' (book and CDs) which has its faults but will at least give you a fair chance of learning something.
