Learn Kannada In 30 Days Through English is a useful guide for all those who wish to grasp the nuances of the Kannada language and attain the required level of fluency in day to day conversations.
The book is divided into five parts and takes the reader through the basics of the Kannada language, covering grammar, and gradually moves onto the construction of sentences that ensure that they get comfortable while holding a conversation in Kannada.
Part 1 and 2 of the book cover topics related to the Kannada alphabet, gender, number, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, tense, and words that are often confused with others. Part 3 introduces the reader to the building of sentences by way of listing out some of the most useful expressions used in Kannada and the construction of sentences with respect to the correct tense (past, present and future).
The last two parts of Learn Kannada In 30 Days Through English takes the reader through a few common situations that they are most likely to find themselves in, in their everyday lives. The reader is presented with sample sentences and conversations that they are bound to have at home, while shopping, and about the time and the weather. Furthermore, sample pieces of conversation between friends, a doctor and a patient, while travelling and asking for directions gives the reader a real feel of the Kannada language and is aimed at relating what they have been learning to real-life situations. The books ends with a list of common idioms and proverbs, verbs and a Kannada to English dictionary of a few common words.
