Given all the above, I will reiterate that I don't recommend this book at all for any language learners. It uses written Chinese as a language to use as a grammar syntax benchmark, and takes a shallow look into other languages like Persian, Bantu, Arabic, and others — including some Slavic. I come back to this book year after year to read new chapters and refresh myself on those I've already read.

He is best remembered for his many books for adults and children that attempted to make math and science available to popular audiences. Other similar books teach you to learn any language, including those outside the Indo-European language family that share literally nothing with your native tongue, English. You are going to make mistakes and fall into traps no matter what, so don’t get discouraged by exceptions.A synthetic international language must wait for adoption upon political and educational conditions which are not yet in sight. Thus état (state), étranger (stranger, foreigner), étoffe (stuff), éponge (sponge), épouse (spouse, wife), épicier (grocer—man who sells spices), and école (school) come to life if we know this. WE HAVE MULTIPLE OPTIONS IN COLOR OF LEATHER RED, GREEN, BLUE, MAGENTA, TAN, DEEP BROWN, BLACK WITH DIFFERENT COLOR LABELS. The binding suffers moderate to severe loosening due to age and wear, but remains secure and in-tact; the pages are clean and unmarked. Taking advantage of the Latin and Teutonic roots would greatly aid learning the Romance and Germanic languages, respectively.

Despite learning a language being much more than mastering the grammar, understanding better the grammar also helps, and tracing similarities makes it easier. It shows, through basic vocabularies, family resemblances of languages--Teutonic, Romance, Greek--helpful tricks of translation, key combinations of roots and phonetic patterns. A primeira trata da história natural da linguagem e traz um panorama da história do alfabeto, do uso das flexões e como elas vão decaindo conforme a língua evolui, da sintaxe e da classificação das línguas. But this book is more than a guide to foreign languages; it goes deep into the roots of all knowledge as it explores the history of speech.Anyways it's not the kind of book I can't read cover to cover but even a partial reading gives you a much better and more holistic sense of how language works. At one point, the author mentions that his only suggestion for learning Russian is to have been born in Russia and have grown up there. I’m looking forward to someday using the section about working within the Romance and Teutonic languages.
