5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended
This is what I expect from an introductory language course!
The book is split into 16 chapters with each chapter explaining and illustrating specific grammar point(s). To this end the book is amongst the best I have used.
The dialogues are as interesting and natural as one could expect under the constraints. There are even moments of humour. The grammar...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice course - shame about the book
5 stars as a language course (love it) - 0 stars for the quality of the book. This is by far the cheapest, shoddiest piece of publishing I have ever owned. It's printed on paper not much better quality than bog roll and the pages just keep on falling out. Most of the introduction and all of chapters 1 - 4 are now in a heap on the floor so today I decided to pull out the...

5 stars as a language course (love it) - 0 stars for the quality of the book. This is by far the cheapest, shoddiest piece of publishing I have ever owned. It's printed on paper not much better quality than bog roll and the pages just keep on falling out. Most of the introduction and all of chapters 1 - 4 are now in a heap on the floor so today I decided to pull out the remaining pages, punch some holes in the margins and put the whole thing in an A5 ring binder.

This is what I expect from an introductory language course!
The book is split into 16 chapters with each chapter explaining and illustrating specific grammar point(s). To this end the book is amongst the best I have used.
The dialogues are as interesting and natural as one could expect under the constraints. There are even moments of humour. The grammar explanations are concise and to the point. There are plenty of tables and illustrations to aid memory. Exercises as well.

This should be no surprise as the author is a native speaker with experience of teaching Turkish to adults.

The book to buy.

My only complaint, and it is not with the author, is with the quality of the paper and the binding. Hodder use low quality paper with poor binding. My one is falling apart. Come on Hodder, do your authors some justice and print your books on quality paper!

2.0 out of 5 stars This was a disappointment, 2 Aug 2013

The book has a lot in it but unfortunately the audio part of this set is very poor. I have found better learning resources much cheaper and I have learnt a lot faster using them. I was generally very disappointed in this product.
