It’s a very short book but has a lot of useful phrases for everyday life in Dakar. The one minor flaw of this book is that there are a few typos. There is even an omission of a letter in the pronunciation section – there’s a description of how to pronounce the letter but where the letter should be is blank.
Sample phrase from book:
Three. How much is that? Ñett. Ñaata la?
- Pronouncing and writing certain sounds
- Greetings and basic chit-chat
- Negotiating prices
- Times of day
- Telling the time
