Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Turkish Phrase Book & Dictionary (Berlitz Phrase Book)?
Excellent for travelers Apr 12, 2010
Other reviewers have covered the basics, but I want to give special praise to Berlitz's great idea of beginning each section with "Essential" - words and phrases a traveler needs most often. Particularly if you don't have a lot of time to master an elementary level of spoken Turkish, these brief sections give you a shot at communicating from the get-go. I also really like two unusual sections Berlitz laces throughout this handy, pocket-sized book: "You May See" boxes help you understand what important written signs and instructions mean, and "You May Hear" boxes help prepare you for what people may say to you. Very cool! Finally, I appreciate the inclusion of a useful dictionary.
fine for a tourist who wants only phrases Nov 2, 2008
This is not helpful for someone who really wants to learn the language. No grammar, a poor dictionary, poor pronunciation guides and thick pages which makes the little it offers less portable
learning Turkish Jan 20, 2008
Berlitz publishes some of the best dictionaries and phrase books for international speaking. This poor book has been used so much it is tattered and well loved. My husband is Turkish and while he is learning English we both use it to reference words and phrases so we can get our points across to everyone. It goes with us everywhere.
GREAT BOOK! Jun 4, 2007
MERHABA, THIS IS A GREAT BOOK, IT TEACHES YOU ALL THE BASICS ABOUT TURKISH, I RECOMMEND GETTING ALSO THE LONELY PLANET TURKISH PHRASEBOOK, 1999, BY JIM MASTERS AND TOM BROSNAHAN, COK GUZEL, HOSCA KALIN!
Berlitz bounces high Dec 14, 2004
I compared this phrasebook with the Lonely Planet Turkish phrasebook in the bookstores. Which one won? Berlitz is newer and had a fresher layout.
For good focus on situational social communication, Berlitz spells it out pretty well. Phrasebooks aren't like dictionaries though--you need to spend some time reading it prior to going if you want to make it more useful.
It's not as 'scholarly' as Barron's At A Glance and Vocabulary/Grammar books, but it does very well for just one travel language aid.
