5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful, May 10, 2014
This dictionary is very helpful with thousands of words defined. What I find especially helpful is that many of the definitions include sample phrases and sentences that demonstrate the usage of the word For example, for the word "hair", they would also definie hairspary, hairnet, hairbrush, hair style, etc. There also has a section in the center of the dictionary on Hispanic culture and pages on how to write business letters in Spanish with sample business letters to show the correct format.


Bulgarian vocabulary for English speakers - 9000 words
Bulgarian vocabulary for English speakers - 9000 words
by Andrey Taranov
Edition: Paperback
Price: $16.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for vocabulary building, March 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bulgarian Vocabulary is a good supplement to a Bulgarian language instruction book or class. It is not a grammar book or a dictionary, however it is a list of 9,000 words listed according to category. Some of the categories include pronouns, days of the week, food, drinks, finances, transportation and many other categories. Not only are the words written in the Cyrillic alphabet, there is also phonetic spelling to help in pronouncing the words.

This book is a good way of increasing your vocabulary in Bulgarian on a wide variety of subjects.

4.0 out of 5 stars Verb conjugations are helpful, February 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have this book on my Kindle and it is very helpful to have to have 101 verbs conjugated in six different tenses. The illustrations are cute and the pages are very colorful. The only problem is on the Kindle, even with the highest setting, the font for the verbs is small and difficult to read, however, it is still convenient to have the conjugations available when I am studying Swedish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Explanations of grammar are helpful, February 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I find this book helpful because it explains the grammar and has exercises that reinforce the lesson at the end of each chapter. The only thing I would really like to include in a book, since Polish is difficult for those who are not familiar with he language to read, is phonetic spelling to help with the pronunciation, or audio files or CD's that could be included with the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for building advanced vocabulary, November 7, 2005
This book is an outstanding vocabulary builder for those studying Mandarin Chinese. It would be very helpful for intermediate students. It is not meant for beginners since it is assumed the student can read and understand basic Chinese sentences. It does not have a section on Chinese grammar, which would have to be learned from some other source.

The book has many chapters, each dealing with a particular subject. Sample chapters include "At the Restaurant", "The automobile" with detailed vocabulary words for such things as the gas pedal, clutch, neutral gear, etc., a sports chapter with vocabulary for basketball, tennis,

etc. and even a chapter on computers with words such as Pentium (Benteng), hard disk (yingpan) and floppy disk (ruanpan). There are exercises at the end of each chapter with the answers provided at the end of the book.

I found this book very helpful for building vocabulary that goes beyond the usual basic beginning grammar book.


Complete Idiot's Guide to Learning Latin
Complete Idiot's Guide to Learning Latin
by Natalie Harwood
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
85 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars This book makes learning Latin easy, June 2, 2003
I have studied several languages, but when it came to Latin, I was really a complete idiot. However, this book helps explain the grammar a little, rather than expecting the student to memorize all the cases at once, as many of the old fashioned Latin books used to do.
The book also gives interesting historical background which helps to put the language in its proper historical perspective, both in Roman times and later when Latin was used by the Church. There is also a section devoted to Latin in the modern world.
All in all, I find this a very informative book.

I have been studying German for a few years now, and I find this book very helpful. This particular book deals with grammar much more thoroughly than other books in the Teach Yourself series. the grammar is thoroughly explained with examples and charts.
I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enriched my knowledge of Ancient Rome, February 8, 2003
This book is great.
Anyone fascinated by ancient history can learn a great deal from a book like this. The book provides drawings of typical homes, the markets and the bath houses as well as many other features of daily Roman life.
Besides being loaded with drawings portraying ancient Roman life, there are also brief descriptions of things such as Roman religion, personal security, money, medical treatment, etc.
This is a good book to add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Book for Gone With the Wind Fans, June 23, 2002
This book is packed with information and great photographs, both in color and black and white. The majority of the book deals with the filming an abundance of behind-the-scenes shots.
Also of particular interest is the post-production section dealing with the public's reaction to the movie and the section on the Premiere. This is a great book to add to your personal library.
