"Teach yourself Afrikaans" is a complete course in reading and writing, speaking and understanding Afrikaans. It will be perfect for you if you are a complete beginner or if you have some knowledge of the language which you need to brush up. The book is very communication-centered and the emphasis throughout is on speaking and being understood in everyday situations.
The course has 15 units, all based on the kind of language you will need on a visit to South Africa. New language and grammar is presented through dialogues and there is plenty of opportunity for you to practise and check your understanding as you go along. The culture notes will ensure that you get the most out of any business trip or holiday and the English-Afrikaans and Afrikaans-English vocabularies will be invaluable, both as you work through the course and on any trip you take.
There is an accompanying double CD
