This is a well written book for anyone trying to learn the slightly tricky but very rewarding language of afrikaans. I am english and my husband is an Afrikaaner and when I first heard him talk I was very confused and honestly thought I would never understand the language now a few years later I am by no means fluent but can get by. His family are amazed as my hubbie is not a big teacher and so I am self taught. The phonetics are a god send and I can trying getting my mouth around the language before trying it on him. Yes, he still laughs at me but I feel more confident then I would without the help of this book.
