Learn Tongan Now! Feb. 22 2007
By Anna T. Naufahu Talakai - Published on Amazon.com
I am so grateful for the book and audio cd's. I am now able to speak with those family members that were only able to speak Tongan. What a joy it is to be able to communicate in the native language of my ancestors and have a relationship with wonderful communication between so many more people now simply because of the tools I was given, The Intensive Course In Tongan book and audio cd's. A great investment!

Best way to learn Tongan March 12 2007
By A. Pope - Published on Amazon.com
This Book and CD is the best way to Learn Tongan. It is straight forward and easy to study on your own. The CD allows the student to learn how to pronounce words and also be able to understand Tongan spoken at full speed. I would recommend then CD for anyone wishing to Learn Tongan!

Very good, but without the accomodating book - useless Dec 4 2010

When I first bought the intense course in Tongan I was not aware that it required a book to be read along with it. I received it in the mail and thought "how on earth do I understand the meanings of these sentences and words they're teaching me?"

With great luck, or divine intervention, my Tongan house-mate gave me a book, completely unrelated to the intensive course. The book happened to be the one that accomodated the course. What a coincidence.

4 stars because it is the only course available, but it is very good. Do it all and you'll be able to communicate with the Tongans in their language more formally. At this level you'll quickly pick up the local jargons and slangs and become a fluent speaker in no time at all.

I left off 1 star because it is not sold with the book....

This course is amazing. It is very easy to follow and is accurate in the translation of words (my dad is fluent and told me it was). Buy the book along with the CDs so you can really understand whats being said. Would recommend to EVERYONE. Great course.
EXCELLENT course! Aug. 6 2014

Very fast shipping! This course was everything I was expecting and more. You must use this along with the book in order to translate what the Tongan words mean in English. EXCELLENT course!!
