This pack includes a book and one MP3 CD of audio material.
The grammar sections of this book are clear and it assumes no knowledge of Turkish, os is good as a book for a complete novice. Previous version of this book was rather out dated and the vocabulary was rather old fashioned. I’m not clear whether this version has been substantially updated or just minor changes.
Availability – new and used available online on Amazon. Used versions of the previous edition are often available at the KAR Bookstall in Lamboursa Market
