By F. Ong on October 28, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Looking at Languages Workbook was quite good and organized. Really benefited my son who is currently taking a linguistics course in college. The dealer we bought from shipped via postal mail so it was a bit slow using Media Mail to Hawaii but I did not choose a faster way so I guess this was my fault. Dealer advertised workbook as new. It was relatively new, no marks or mark-ups inside but the outside was a tad beat up like it had been on the shelf for a while. Overall a good deal and good price.
