Each lesson begins with a list of things that you should be able to understand and use by the time you finish the lesson. This is followed by a ‘Dialogue’ with a short introduction in English. In the first five lessons you will find a list of new words you will have come across in the dialogue, followed by a full translation. However, from Lesson 6, the translation is not provided. By this stage you should be trying to understand the meaning of unfamiliar language from the context, by listening or reading for clues. Don’t worry if you can’t understand much to start with; you will build up a feeling for the language as you progress.
