Buy this.... don't bother looking for any other phrasebook!
on 12 May 2015
These Lonely Planet Phrasebooks are the best books ever! They are great for learning how to speak correctly (pronunciation) and for using slightly unusual phrases. At school, we were always taught to say, "I would like..." in French, but this also teaches you how to say, "Can I have..." I like these variations, which means my children are learning slightly different ways to say similar things. They were complimented on their understanding and pronunciation of words and phrases when speaking both French and Spanish. I also like the sections in the books, which are organised and separated very well. Plus, at the back of the book there is a place where you can look up English words to the translation and vice versa! At the front, there is a bit about tenses, male and female and how particular letters alter sounds depending on what letters they are with. I will never buy another brand of phrasebook again. These books are very compact, but covered everything I needed and more.
