Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Teach Yourself Complete Turkish - Book and CD (TY Complete Courses) (Paperback)
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!
