    "Don't waste your money"

    Very poor audiobook. Consists solely of one voice saying a word or phrase, followed by the swahili word. Mostly nouns, adjectives and adverbs. No conversations, no syntax, no verbs are congugated. Useful series of words or related words (numbers, months, days of the week, colors) are not offered.

    "Horrible waste of money!!!"

    This book is pathetic! They say a word in English, and then repeat it in Swahili, and then go on to the next word. I heard no sentence structure, and no grammar lessons. Just words spoken and then repeated in Swahili, never to be repeated for usage.

    "OK if you speak the language"

    Just a list of words, random, in no context, with out any 'conversation'. This will not get you out of the airport unless you have perfect audio memory and can re-assort the words into something useful.

    "A list of random words"

    This is no use if you are hoping to learn the language or pick up a useful phrase or two for your holiday. The vocabulary is in a completely random order, e.g. 'onion, December, pompous, dress...' so you have no chance at all of finding a section or even a word you want to learn. Each word is only given once, so you have to backtrack if you want to check or try again. Maybe this would be a good revision aid /self-test for someone who already knew quite a lot of the language.

    "Okay for a free sample"

    I'm not too keen on the robot American English voice. It is rather annoying. But I guess it will do as a free sample intended to drill Swahili into my head.
