With stunning new design and layout and the most up-to-date travel information, the market's most indispensable phrasebook CD pack has been reinvented, and is better than ever. Gem Malay CD Pack will give you the right word at the right time - every time In all of the most common travel situations, you need the reassurance that you can communicate with ease. A reliable, portable and easy-to-use phrasebook is a travel essential, and now with the completely re-designed Collins Gem Malay CD Pack with an accompanying CD to help you hear and practise the language for real, the right word will always be at your fingertips. With a whole new look inside and out that includes a new cover and easy-to-navigate layout, it is now simpler than ever to use the Malay language effectively and with confidence. This indispensable multimedia language guide covers the topics and phrases that crop up everyday on holiday, from finding a hotel to choosing wine.
The CD is short, 40 minutes of content, but is well-designed for fast acquisition of the basic questions, numbers, sentence patterns, and supports multiple listenings. The format is English, slow Malay, then faster Malay. I particularly like how repetitions use different nouns to reinforce the core sentence pattern ("please bring me a plate of rice", "please bring me a cup of tea", etc). I didn't hear lisping per se, but from the differences between the slower and faster pronunciations I can understand the observation.
The phrasebook is also surprisingly useful. It is 4.6x3.25 inches, a bit smaller than other phrasebooks, but the type is larger and is actually practical to read on the street. Chapters are broken out by topic area ("at the hotel", "email" etc) with both common questions and cultural context (mail options, how to behave in a mosque, menu tips). The dictionary includes both words and common questions you might use with those words. Well laid-out.
This is not a full course in the language. But if you're trying to quickly come up-to-speed with core phrases, the Collins phrasebook/CD series seems a winner.
