Reviews - What do customers think about Luganda-English Phrase Book for Tourists?
Good, but too expensive in U.S. Jul 6, 2006
I've tried some of these phrases out on my Luganda tutor, and they seem to be up to date. There are some "city" phrases here that I couldn't find elsewhere--for example "Ommanja mmeka?" for "How much does it cost?"
You should know that there is a Luganda phrase list available for free on the internet that may even be a little more comprehensive. If you live in the U.S., it's probably not worth paying the cost of shipping Nanfuka's book over from Europe.
A great start Apr 9, 2001
This is a great start. If u know anyone who speaks luganda, using this book and then speaking to then for pronunciation will be your break to learning a lot of what u need to know. Commit this all to memory and you should be well on your way.
Good for a Tourist or Beginner Jan 29, 1998
I own this book and I find it very good for everyday phrases and the things a tourist would need. If you plan on visiting or learning some basic luganda this would be a worthwhile purchase
