Excellent summary of main grammar points to get you started, with examples of use for easy understanding. 40 pages of useful phrases that are very up-to-date, at least for those travelling in the Kinshasa area. The pronounciation guide is ambigious and based on English sounds, but luckily Lingala is not difficult to pronounce for English speakers, so it's fine. You'd be better off finding a native speaker to get you started, however.
