Afrikaans is a language with a particularly rich sound inventory. Do not presume that you can learn to speak it from the text alone. Along with the audio this is a very nicely written book and given that Afrikaans is relatively easy you will get good results

Bought this for my Fiance to learn a few Afrikaans phrases and he really likes it. I think it is suppose to come with a CD but does not, so he struggles with pronunciation. but overall a very lovely book to lern Afrikaans

I bought this CD along with "Teach yourself ZULU", approximately 45 pounds for the both(Just over i think) Like both CD's, they both came WITHOUT the course book, which is essential and totally PART of the language excercises, without it you CANNOT follow the course. So from the beginning i was stuck, it was HOPELESS WITHOUT the course book. For approximately 22 pounds for each CD(which is far too much), i found that the person who was translating the "Teach yourself Afrikaans" was not even an Afrikaans speaker, but worse than that they were not(as far as i could determine from my previous experience of speaking Afrikaans) even translating the correct meanings from the Afrikaans excercises on the CD. I did not try out the "Teach yourself Zulu" fully yet, but it's obviously by the same company(CD covers are the same) So i assume it will have the same problems, as it also came without a course book. I found the 2 CD's a COMPLETE waste of money and time, a big dissapointment. I also discovered that other language CD's from other well known companies that i won't mention here cost as little as 2 pounds and 49 pence, including delivery! Some even less than 2 pounds! I even tried a couple of these 2 pound AFRIKAANS CD's from other companies and found they had a much larger and more comprehensive collection of vocabulary!
Don't buy these items, they are far too expensive and without the course book you won't learn a thing! The excercises are rushed through very quickly and this CD is not for beginners, you have to have a reasonable level of afrikaans in order to follow the CD, and without the course book you have to guess what is going on. As well as this there are not enough excersises on the CD, it is far too short. For approx. 22 pounds i expected a large selection of afrikaans excersises, but there were very little! A waste of money big time!
