What is powerful about this is that it presents language in meaningful chunks–words and phrases designed to get you communicating right away.
Phrasebooks are powerful because they focus completely on communication. They don’t get into the grammar. If they do, it’s not much. They just get into telling you what you need to be able to communicate with people. Yo can make your own based on any topic if you have a notebook.
