It's decent, but it is basically just like an extended glossary of Chichewa terms. I think you would need the CD along with it to benefit as then you would understand the pronunciation. To properly learn some of the language I think it would be good for it to show scenarios rather than just a list of vocab.

The introduction which explains the background to the language is good.

Gave me a good "headstart" on the language before my trip. Found it mostly to be accurate, only a couple of differences, perhaps regional (for example, where I was staying, people said "wawa" for hi, not "moni"). Pronunciation guide helpful too, and great that there is a series of youtube clips to accompany the book.

I've been trying to learn Chichewa for a year now, but listening to my partner pronounce everything so quickly isn't the best method. Not for me at least. The book has got good lessons, practical words that you hear every day and therefore really need to know. This book has really helped me understand Chichewa. Thanks for that.
