5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Starting Point for those wishing to learn Slovak, 22 Jun. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Colloquial Slovak: The Complete Course for Beginners (Colloquial Series) (Paperback)
Cau! Being engaged to a Slovak national, here in the UK and wanting to learn her language for the many trips we'll be making over there (the country is beautiful by the way, a lost paradise in industrial Europe). I decided to pick a book at random for a back-up to the lessons she is giving me. I chose Colloquial and am extremely glad I did. The main stumbling block for me when it comes to languages is understanding the gramma and pronunciation. These are introduced easily and logically & along with the useful phrases and a well set learning curve contribute to an excellent beginners guide to the language. It is pretty up-to-date (according to my missus) although one or to phrases it gives as common are apparently hardly ever used these days. Still a minor flaw and forgivable when the work is so well presented. I would recommend that any buyer purchases the audio tapes that go with this manual if no other source of spoken Slovak is available. This is by no means a complete guide to speaking the language but further purchases of a recent large dictionary and a more in depth gramma guide will certainly make the Slovak language an understandable and enjoyable experience. Do Videnia!
