The rapid and practical way to master the basics and begin speaking the language. The book gives you the essential, simplified grammar plus 3000 of the most-used words and idiomatic phrases that people use in real-life situations. The book can be used as a self-learner by beginners and also by those who want to brush up.
Adrienne's key to teaching a language is to eliminate "the boring repetition of inane exercises." She emphasizes vocabulary, and lots of it (grammar will then come naturally); frequent tests (indispensable if you want to learn the language in less than ten years); and writing right away, maybe describing your house or job. Jump in!
The Gimmick Books are based on the author's many years of successfully teaching languages to tourists, business people, diplomats, and other international travelers.
