They insist that you can learn basic grammar and an extensive vocabulary in 10-12 hours with these courses which have been developed by Dr Michael Grunberg. (Its a pity they didn't have these at my school - 5 years and I still can't speak French!) Choose from Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish (European), Spanish (South American) and Welsh. You can have the course as a CD or as an MP3 digital download. Good Luck! Linkword is based in Swansea.
