The book is well written an all, but I find that the Sinhalese reported is sometimes too formal.... it is not colloquial Sinhalese, not a way in which to converse on a day to day basis.
I think it would be better to provide a product that defines the difference between what is been used on a daily routine and what to use on a formal occasion.
Have tried various phrase books over the years, but always find that Lonely planet are well written, include everything you need and are pretty reasonable price wise. Also includes little facts about the culture and traditions- sure it'll be of great use.
There is not enough help to allow a beginner to understand phrase construction.
The written sinhala characters are very small and difficult to read.
May be OK if you are already a fluent and experienced speaker already.
All in all I lost confidence in this very quickly and am looking for something more down to earth.
