This was a terrific book for acquiring the basics of Afrikaans grammar, vocabulary, and syntax. As others have noted, without audio accompaniment or some prior exposure to Afrikaans or Dutch, it likely will be difficult for complete beginners to get the pronunciation right. That said, this is a very accessible, well-designed, practical, and comprehensive primer on Afrikaans, and one that I enjoyed using very much. I expect that I'll pick it up regularly for refresher help prior to future visits to South Africa.

I appreciate that this book is accompanied by a website that has practice exercises in which I can practice pronunciation.

While the book would be more beneficial if you also purchase the audio discs that go along with it, it none the less gives you a lot of good starter sentences to form the basis of real communication.

There is also not a lot of other books out there for this particular language.

Colloquial Afrikaans is a well-written, concise presentation of a very difficult language. I enjoy doing the exercises.
They seem well-thought-out. I would suggest, however, if I could, that there be a vocabulary list at the end of each
chapter.

Using the two tapes and the book I was able to pick up enough to make myself understood with not too much of an Maerican-English accent. Glad I got this before I travelled to South Africa.

Its got plenty of dialogues and very useful in real life conversations, too bad it is a book meant to use with audio, as it is unavailable, so you just have to imagine how Afrikaans sounds like. I am lucky enough of living in South Africa and have plenty of Afrikaans friends, but those who don't should better go to their website and buy the audio.

I've studied several languages and I can say that - as a native English speaker - Afrikaans is the EASIEST language to learn. This book is a great introduction to Afrikaans - the easiest language for a native English (and Dutch) speaker and also the easiest and most logical and analytical Germanic language. After mastering a working knowledge of Afrikaans with this book, I was able to converse with South Africans and Dutch speakers. Prior to this, I only learned/studied Latin-based languages (Spanish and Portuguese). Now, I can read/understand Afrikaans and Dutch (and more German than I thought I could). I got this book on a whim (curious about other Germanic languages as a native English speaker focusing on Iberian languages) and have now fallen in love with the other languages in my native West-Germanic language family.
I think is this by far the best Latvian book and audio combination out there. This is my first attempt at learning Latvian and I already speak Lithuanian. The audio is superb and is spoken at native rhythm with native speakers. The book follows the usual listening passage/grammar/exercises. I would highly recommend this to anyone serious about learning Latvian! You can never go wrong with the Routledge Colloquial Series books and audio.
