This book deals with the Yiddish language with the typical "Colloquial" approach. First there is a short dialogue, followed by explanations of the grammar and then exercises. Its introduction to the Hebrew alphabet is also very good. Recommended for anyone wishing to learn this language.
Colloquial Yiddish is a very well written approach to learning the Yiddish language. All of the building blocks of the language are presented in a manner which makes language acquisition easier.

If you ever wanted to learn Yiddish,now is your chance. Buy the book and CD together. Work diligently and you will be very satisfied with the result.
This book is very good. I like the structure of the book. The book is very clear and is structured in a classical way. A text followed by vocabulary and then a portion of grammar. The following audio CD is a very good help.
