This book is not a great option for learning a language from the ground up
on March 23, 2017
This is a review for the actual
Content, not the used book seller. This book is not a great option for learning a language from the ground up. In my experience, learning a language is best some the way students learn Latin (or used to): grammar must be introduced, practiced and built upon. This book introduces grammar concepts too quickly with minimal Practice and then throws exercises at the student which contain all kinds of concepts the student has never learned. The book is too thin and does not contain enough practices or review
(Even with the workbook and audio files). I do not recommend this book at all and If you're signing up for a class that uses it be sure you are aware that the book will be a hindrance and not a help.
