This book is aimed at English, Italian or Tigrinya speaking people who want to learn conversational Tigrinya or Italian. This book is indispensable for travelers to the Horn of Africa needing a simple conversation guide to the languages spoken there. The course can be used in a class or for private study. To develop and strengthen the communication resources of the learner, this book presents, and repeats cyclically, the most relevant language functions and notions. This spiral system' of presenting material is the distinguishing feature of the book.

The book provides:

- Phraseology-referring to the lists of language tasks-covering most of the vocabulary, structures, notions and functions to be used productively and receptively. The phraseology generally follows the pattern of a conversation, presenting questions on the left-hand side and answers on the right-hand side.

- Personal Identification
