Product Description

You're no idiot, of course. You can serve up a mean s'il vous plant in a French bistro, live la vida loca for a night of margaritas, and manage a sayonara! after sushi, sake, and karaoke. But when it comes to throwing around a little Yiddish, you feel like a total nebbish!

Don't throw up your hands in a helpless "Oy, vey" just yet! The Complete Idiot's Guide to Learning Yiddish is your guide to this unique tongue, whether you're tackling rules of grammar or just throwing around some key phrases so you sound a little less goyish. In this Complete Idiot's Guide you'll get a fascinating explanation of how and why Yiddish developed; an easy introduction to the Yiddish alphabet, as well as to the distinctive sound of Yiddish; all the Yiddish you'll need for communicating with family and friends or for bargain-hunting on New York's Lower East Side; and a treasury of Yiddish words and phrases for everything. 366 indexed pages, softcover.
