Useful but not brilliant
on 24 July 2011
I think the book is confused between being a language teaching book and a phrase book. More than half of the books is taken up with Lithuanian grammar which is very complicated. Unless you're a linguist or very interested in grammar and language this bit is just very confusing and totally over the top of a week's holiday.
The phrases that I needed weren't always easy to find or in fact there. Also it is in American English so at times I couldn't find words in the dictionary part of the book because I was looking them up British English.
It was the only book I could find though and I did get use out of it. I would have preferred the grammar section to be replaced with more useful phrases and the book to have been slightly smaller. Also it would have been useful to have the pronounciation of the phrases written out phonetically.
