Review quote

"The layout makes for a digestible read; each chapter begins with a dialogue and vocabulary list, followed by grammar points and exercises. The chapters are spattered with side notes that warn about common mistakes and caveats in a given lesson. I also have the accompanying workbook, which gives a lot of good practice."
