Format: Paperback
Very good book to start learning the language. The sole thing I would like to point out is that the grammatical explanations should be easier for the very beginner or for people who don't have any formation in linguistics. The exercices material should be refreshed. In any case the book is worth the price you pay and the time you spend in learning the language!

HASH(0x92393e70) out of 5 stars a fair textbook 17 Dec. 2007
By hsw27 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book as a one of the few modern Mongolia textbooks out there in the market does do a good job presenting basic Mongolian grammatical concepts, with a plus since it has an accompanying cassette. However, this book does not do a thorough job in laying out Mongolian grammar and it has many typos which are really irritating. In comparison Colloquial Mongolian is a better book both in terms of presenting Mongolian language, culture and the price of the book.

HASH(0x92393ec4) out of 5 stars Good Introduction But Lacking 18 Aug. 2007
By Pieter F. Theron - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am living in Darhan, Mongolia, and have been doing full-time Mongolian language study for 8 months. I ordered and used this book as part of my language studies. This book gives a good introduction to Mongolian and it helps to have some grammatical explanations in English. The exercises in the book are good for practice. However, the book is insufficient for learning Mongolian fully, either spoken or written. There are some errors in the book - grammtical and the use of some endings (suffixes). This book helps as an introduction to the language and gives an overview of some basics, but as said, is not sufficient to really learn the language.

HASH(0x9386dd68) out of 5 stars Best Book Out There 5 Sept. 2011
By bob - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can honestly say that having been in Mongolia a few months now this has been the most helpful to study. I would have given it a 5 had the fact you can't get the audio accompaniment anywhere. Hearing how the words are said would make this even better. I also know having lived here some words aren't actually pronounced the way they suggest but that's a failure of every other book I've tried.

I love the fact words are mixed and not based on topics. The grammar rules pronunciation is packed at the beginning so you see it over and over again as you progress. Everyone learns differently but for me this was the most helpful.

HASH(0x9386df24) out of 5 stars Not perfect, but very solid, and a good range of grammatical principles 2 Sept. 2013
By Brad - Published on
Format: Paperback
The only thing to worry about besides a few small grammatical and spelling errors is the use of -ав as the past tense verb conjugation. This is old school and not very common in the colloquial vernacular. -сан is the common past tense verb conjugation used currently. Beyond that, this book rocks.

This course book moves along. It's not hard to keep up but no time is wasted getting at the meat of language structure.
There are good review charts - helpful aids.
