This book is great, but obviously constructed to be used by a student already knowldgeable about vocabulary, or at least a teacher who can teach the vocab in advance.
It is great for the alphabet, because it shows a word that uses the letter AND.. the 'transliteration' in english. BUT, the excercises will have a series of pictures, and ask which start with what sound... the problem is, unless they know the language already, they won't know what sound the words start with.. and thus can't utilize the excercises.
Great book for children or adults who know the language but not the script. IF, you have a teacher who can teach you the vocab as you learn the script, THEN it is a good book for those not so familiar with the spoken language yet.
As a side note, if the publisher or author were to release this in a second edition... I would take the simple step of putting transliterated pronunciations in the excercises as well... it is easy to do, and makes the book usable by fluent speakers and those new to the language as well.
