It's OK but not easy to use when you're there
on 24 April 2010
This is alright to get some language into you but on the whole the phrases aren't terribly useful. When I arrived in Athens I found that I was always searching for a word to turn into Greek and failing to find what I wanted.
I felt that compared with other language guides that I've used this isn't amongst the best. It's not useless but I'm looking for something else to help the next time around and I think (if we manage to organise a trip to Berlin later in the year) I wouldn't be looking at the German equivalent as my first port of call. As we were very short of time I bought this blind and didn't have a chance to compare with other books and so I'd recommend that you go into a bookshop and look first to compare.
