Preface

Sometime ago while I was in search of a book on a science subject I chanced to see a book about which loud claims of learning a language in a short time without the aid of teacher were made. My curiosity knew no bounds and I wondered if it was possible to verify those claims. After reading a few pages here and there it took me no time to realize that this was a case of overestimation not that this could not be dome but because the book had many drawbacks. However it prompted mw to cerate work myself which should be worthwhile and should really benefit the learner. Although I will not claim that bone can master a language in a given period of time because language is a boundless thing yet I have taken care to present my work in a simple and easy to understand manner. A beginner can follow the lessons without nay pause and realize that this languages is just not that difficult to learn as he had dreaded.

There are writers who ignore grammar and fill their books with translated sentences in the pious belief that one can learn a language with the aid of only readymade sentences. But this is wrong. Knowledge of grammar is essential for learning correct language. The superstructure of translations howsoever well masters just disappears as soon as the learner is asked to write grammatically correct sentences. The learner realizes that he is nowhere near the language and that he learning of grammar is basic to the learning of correct language. Once he understands the rules of grammar he has crossed more than half the way towards the learning of the language and easy presentation of these rules smoothens his path further.
