Colins malay phrasebook

Colins Malay phrasebook 




And this is one book received  ion bundle this year together with  some others  that that were related to Malay customs . This is a  small (caA6 sized )colorful book of ca 250 pages  accompanied with a  CD

I will do here some minimal presentation :

Fist  the CD covers topics not referred to the book and referes:
Introduction
Essential words
Asking for things I and II
Shopping phrases
Numbers
Basic foodstuffs
Quantities
Tickets
Where???
When??
days of the week
My you’re his
Problems
About yourself
Goodbye



The book has the following topics :

Malay pronunciation  using ejaan baru (notice that this book is very recent !)
Ten tips in communicating with Malaysian  people

Talking to people
Getting around
Driving
Staying somewhere
Shopping
Leisure
Communications
Practicalities
Health
Travelers
Reference
Eating out
 Plus  the following appendixes

Menu reader
Grammar (too basic )
Public holidays
Dictionary

Each part shows    the English  then the Malay equivalent  with the equivalent  pronunciation . There are phrases and also  special vocabulary
For each chapter there are several sub chapters 


This book is very handy and suitable  for anyone who needs immediate reference  to any problems encountered But some previous experience  is required  to first use rte CD in order to get the correct pronunciation


4/5
