3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, up to a certain point Dec 4 2003
By Emily
Format:Paperback
My Nepali boyfriend gave me this little book to learn his language, since when I met him, I had nothing good to say about his country because I knew nothing about it. I was grateful for alot of things in the book, like grammer, sentence structure, who you speak to, cultural tips, etc. But I found the pronunciation guide horrible. They do not explain the differences between many sounds, and only explain certain consonants. They introduce the Devanagari script rather suddenly with no explanation. It would be helpful to know HOW to read it and understand what is written instead of just recognizing it by sight and nothing else, although that is good too.
The dictionary was helpful in the back, but very limited. It only went over words mentioned in the book, and didn't broaden words from outside of what was reviewed. I liked the book as a starter...but even my boyfriend admitted that some things were not said right. (Not as they speak it today, it's too old-fashioned, etc.) I kept having to go to him and ask him things, and the whole point of me having the book was so he wouldn't have to try and teach me. (hahahaha)
So, I guess I would recommend it to people who know nothing about Nepali, but be sure to have someone to ask questions. It's bad enough when you are running blind with a language you haven't heard of before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just buy the book in Nepal Jan. 4 2002
By Sunyata
Format:Paperback
And you find better ones. Lonley planet again fails to deliver with yet another product. The organization is poor, bad choice of phrases, etc..
Heres a tip: skip the book, goto Nepal, meet some Nepali's talk with them, learn a little, then go to the millions of bookstores in Khatmandhu and find a book that fits your needs.
It may be this one, but I doubt it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad dictionary, but... Jan. 26 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The dictionary in the back was helpful, but the organization of the book is not very good and it is awful in explaining pronunciation. After studying it faithfully and trying it out, my Nepali friends, finally, asked in English, "What are you trying to say?" I also learned that some of the information was inaccurate. I hate to speak badly of it, since it is about the only Nepali language travel book on the market, but, hopefully Lonely Planet will consider an overhaul.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for Nepal Jan. 30 2014
By Noah Taxis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you've ever used a phrasebook before, you understand how it comes in handy; little encounters in marketplaces, steadily understanding the speech of those around you, etc. It allows foreigners to cultivate appreciation for the complexity and intricacy of the native tongue, in whatever country. It just so happens that without this, Nepal would essentially be impossible to navigate.
4.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best you'll find. Nov. 15 2012

This book is very helpful for anyone living in Nepal or traveling here. While it doesn't give all the Nepali words I'd like in the dictionary in the back, it does give real practical phrases and info. I am also studying Nepali with a native speaker and I find that this book is a good companion to my studies.
