Limited use for the tourist/holidaymaker,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Linguaphone PDQ Turkish (includes 4 CDs) (Audio CD)
I made a concerted effort with this course before heading off on my first Turkish holiday. The course, while very useful for pronounciation, hearing how the language worked etc. was of limited use in a number of (to me) very important areas.
Ordering drinks - "A coffee" "A Tea" and "A beer please" were just about all that were included. A lack of typical situations.
There was a noticeable lack of appropriate greetings for different times of the day.
The 4 CDs contained information that could have easily been condensed into 2 - too much repetition.
The course book was superficial to say the least.
I couldn't work out who the course was aimed at - not much use on business, limited for holiday situations. More a miscellaneous hotchpotch of "stuff".
No real structure.
Work making the effort if you are going to Turkey however.

Thanks for the review - I'm not a beginner in the pronunciation so it's guided me away from purchasing this item and being disappointed on arrival.
