5.0 out of 5 stars easy lessons for Scots language, 1 Jun 2005
This review is from: Luath Scots Language Learner CD: How to Understand and Speak Scots (Audio CD)
This is an easy to use book for people wanting to learn Scots. It has 25 graded lessons, English-to Scots vocabulary list, verb tables, dialogues for you to practise, grammatical explanations and exercises. It also has a wee bit about background on life in Scotland.
This is very good introductory course for those wishes to learn the language you heard growing up or for Americans wanting to get more in touch their their heritage. There are some good dictionaries on Scots, but this is a long-awaited, first course for teaching yourself. A winning point for American usage - it assumes the user has no prior knowledge of Scots, so it works very well for very basic beginners of Scots.
It's set up with an accompanying audio CD (Sold separately; ISBN: 1842820265) which I highly recommend getting to use with the book. You really need to hear pronunciations. So, if you like Burns but have trouble reading him, you will be reading Robbie like a pro buy the end of the lessons.
The lessons are fun and easy to follow, so this is highly recommended for those interested in learn Scots language.
