about this item

Albanian is spoken by 5.8 million people worldwide, and is an official language of Albania and Kosovo. Albanian is a unique Indo-European language because it has its own branch, whereas most modern languages are at least twice removed from their original branch. Under the Ottoman Empire, teaching Albanian was forbidden and its existence today speaks to the fierce preservation and pride of the Albanian people. Modern standard Albanian is a combination of the two main dialects, Tosk and Gheg. Ideal for those new to Albanian, learning at home or in the classroom, Beginner’s Albanian with Online Audio includes a brief introduction to Albanian history and culture;thirteen carefully-paced and practical lessons with dialogues, vocabulary, and expressions; exercises for each lesson with answer key; Albanian-English and English-Albanian glossaries; an alphabet and pronunciation guide; and online MP3 audio files for download featuring pronunciation by native speakers.
