7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By M. Quinn on September 15, 2009
Format: Paperback
Colloquial Croatian expects far too much of a beginning learner of a foreign language, and the information it does provide is often confusingly explained and organized. When a new grammatical point is introduced, minimal exercises are provided which allow you to practice it, and most of those do not have an answer key. Tables of declensions and conjugations are provided in the back, but in the main text they are replaced instead by verbal explanations which often left me flipping through the pages trying to find the appropriate form. The dialogs and text selections are too numerous and complicated to absorb effectively. Intermediate-level students will find it a useful tool for review and additional learning, while casual learners will find it a place in the recycling.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By NYC Mike on July 11, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book lacks a thorough description of grammar, choosing to selectively omit concepts when the author fiunds it too difficult to tackle. The reader is them left to figure out those concepts by himself because they were too hard to explain -- go figure! The book is also using words not explained in the glossary, and the exercises need words that have not been introduced. The CD does not cover all dialogues.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This edition does not properly display diacritics on some of the letters (specifically all derivations of c). This is a function of the text encoding on Kindles that means that they can only display western languages. In Croatian, this means that several letters are all being written as one, as if an English reading textbook were printing j, f, and d all as f and you were supposed to learn how to read from that. Buy the hard copy.
