A combined book/CD pack, 'Teach Yourself Latvian' is a self-access
course for the independent adult learner of Latvian as a foreign
language. Lively dialogues (recorded by Latvian speakers on the
accompanying double CD) in authentic Latvian introduce the
language, which is then explained in simple English, as it is not
assumed that the student has learned a foreign language before.
Exercises - written, audio, and pictorial - are used to reinforce
learning. Features of the culture of Latvian speakers are also
explored. At the end of the book there are a 'taking it further'
section, a key to the exercises and Latvian-English and
English-Latvian vocabulary lists. The accompanying double CD (0340
915129) is available separately, as is the book (0340 915102).
