Inaccurate - both spelling and grammatical errors
on 8 July 2013
Although it seemed like a perfectly fine phrase book to me, as soon as I showed it to my Swedish partner, they started to notice errors in grammar and spelling. Without reading even half of the book, she had discovered 5 elementary mistakes. These were reported to Berlitz, who assured us that they would be corrected in the next edition (after asking exactly what the errors were, what pages they were on and also how to correct them!), and would send us a free copy of that when it was printed. It seems like this book was not proof-read by a Swedish speaking person, as these errors (and presumably more) would have been noticed straight away.
Good enough to get by on, but I wouldn't expect this level of sloppiness in any book, let alone one which teaches language.
