The Demystifying® language books won’t teach you to speak a new language! But they will unveil the secrets of each language so that you learn more easily. Demystifying these secrets is the key to mastering the new language, as well as giving you a quick start in any formal class or self-study program. Our innovative “playbooks” explain these concepts in plain and easy English, while encouraging you to relax and have fun at the same time!
You wouldn’t try to get to know a new city without a map to guide you. The same principle applies to new languages. Whether you’re brand new to Spanish, French, Italian, or Brazilian Portuguese, or you’re reviewing the language after many years, the Demystifying® language books give you the lay of the land and help you quickly orient yourself to the structure, sounds, and basic rules that govern the language as it is spoken and written. And that’s the first big step to feeling at home with it.
Our fun, user-friendly workbooks or “playbooks” take the mystery and confusion out of learning languages with dozens of illustrations, amusing anecdotes and stories, songs, and more than 80 games and exercises that entertain as they enlighten. A great introduction to a formal course or self-study program, they make getting started as easy as 1-2-3!
Featuring review exercises at the end of each chapter that help you gauge your progress and reinforce what you’ve learned, the Demystifying® language books are indispensable for anyone who is about to start a language course, has already begun one and is feeling lost, or has tried before and is nervous about restarting.
