1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing
Half of this book requires you to learn tamil script which is very difficult and totally wrong to ask of a beginner. The first 30 pages introduce the script. Pages 30 to 120 are romanised and useful though not clear enough and very over formal. Suddenly on page 122 the roman script abruptly disappears when tenses are being spelt out and never comes back. When oh when will...

1.0 out of 5 stars very disappointing, 4 April 2008
This review is from: Learn Tamil in a Month: An Easy Method of Learning Tamil Through English without a Teacher (Paperback)
Half of this book requires you to learn tamil script which is very difficult and totally wrong to ask of a beginner. The first 30 pages introduce the script. Pages 30 to 120 are romanised and useful though not clear enough and very over formal. Suddenly on page 122 the roman script abruptly disappears when tenses are being spelt out and never comes back. When oh when will these pundits put themselves in the students shoes and meet our needs instead of requiring us to meet theirs???

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful, 10 Mar 2010

This review is from: Learn Tamil in a Month: An Easy Method of Learning Tamil Through English without a Teacher (Paperback)
I am a language teacher and have learnt French, German and Japanese.
This book is completely useless and does not give you a chance of even beginning to learn the language. I know it is cheap but do not waste your money!

1.0 out of 5 stars takes readers for fools, 6 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Learn Tamil in a Month: An Easy Method of Learning Tamil Through English without a Teacher (Paperback)
obviously no one will believe the title of this book, but it is unfortunate that the author seem to believe or pretends to believe that learning tamil in month is feasible. More unfortunate ever is the fact that this book is poorly concieved. Most of the explanations are very elusive, the link betweeen exposed rules and illustrative examples is unconvincing. I bought this book thinking it could at the minimum provide some grammatical memo, but it even fails to do so (it should be much more structured to allow for this.
It is true that it is difficult to find a beginner grammar book for english speaking tamil learners, but there is a chance that this book does not fill in this gap and would not significantly help learners.
