I’ve decided to treat myself to a book, but as usual I have an interest in too many languages, and can’t decide which to purchase. Here’s my shortlist:
Teach Yourself Complete Russian by Daphne M. West.
" " " Polish
" " " Mandarin Chinese
Colloquial Italian: The Complete Course for Beginners.
I enjoy slavic languages, which is why I have included the Russian and Polish books. Last time I was on Chinese LingQ, I loved the sound and simplistic nature of Chinese grammar (not to mention it’s fun trying to guess what cheap tattoos actually mean!). I did a year of Italian but the course stopped. Now I can’t remember much, but would like to know some more. I do already have a book on Italian and Russian, but I’d like to know if the ones I mentioned above are worthy of investing in.
What one would you go with? Have you used any of these before? What one is “the best”?
