Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Learning a new language can be scary for a beginner, especially for someone who has attempted once before and failed. The reasons are many: too fast a pace, an overwhelming amount of vocabulary, or problematic memorization. Your First 100 Words series eliminates these obstacles by presenting the meanings and pronunciations of 100 basic words in a simple workbook format, each illustrated and transliterated so the learner can grasp the word without struggling.

The 100 words represent basic topics such as clothes, around town, countryside, opposites, animals, parts of the body, and useful expressions. The learner can test his or her knowledge using the many word games, matching exercises, word searches, and memory tests.

Your First 100 Words series can be used by students as a supplement for their language courses, by parents as an introduction for young children, or by reluctant learners independently.

Also includes:
-- Tear-out flash cards to reinforce new words
-- A "Roundup" chapter that reviews the 100 words and their meanings
-- An answer key to all the puzzles at the back of the book
