Phrase Book Series

These booklets are meant to be a practical and useful language learning resource for self-study or the home environment. They are most helpful for learners who have some familiarity with the language, but beginners should also find the series useful in addition to other language materials.

Each booklet contains a collection of short phrases and words based on everyday situations. Within each booklet are subcategories based on more specific situations divided into chapters. The phrases are random and not in any kind of order.

Each phrase can be used individually with a variety of responses found anywhere in the booklet. Mix and match to the situation you are in. We are aiming for flexibility. In addition to the phrases, there are chapters with common commands, sample conversations, and a wordlist (glossary) at the very end. Many of the phrases in these books include audio in the glossary.

These booklets are a great resource for anyone interested in advancing their language use for everyday conversation.
