Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A brilliant book for a beginner! 100 words are formally introduced (there's additional vocab at the end of the book) and examples given on how to use the words. While it takes time to digest and memorize all the words and their usage, the book is written in such a way that it does not intimidate the reader. A short introduction and commentary is also given on various important topics (e.g. culture, formal and informal behavior, etc)." &#8212Goodreads
