★DON’T JUST PARROT – TRULY UNDERSTAND
Phrases and vocabulary in the phrasebooks also come with literal translations and comments where appropriate, giving you a much deeper understanding of what you’re saying, and revealing sentence structure and grammar.

In time, you can expect to become fluent and proficient in multiple languages across different nationalities and cultures.
