17) Berlitz Turkish Travel Pack

I haven't really finished this, but I gave it enough of a try during last week's trip to northern Nicosia via Istanbul to justify writing it up. It's a combination of the standard Berlitz tourist phrase book with a CD of sample important phrases. To be honest it's not really worth paying the extra for the CD; it's not sufficiently well integrated with the phrase book to be really useful, and the phrases are often too long and spoken too rapidly to repeat easily. But I bought it before I had discovered BYKI.com, which is what I shall use to get my ear in next time. The phrase book is fine, and it's not their fault that I forgot it the one evening I found myself eating on my own at a restaurant where none of the staff spoke English.

btw BYKI non compatible with W2K. No problem, I thought, and copied the install file over to my non-internet W-XP computer. But no. Install.exe needs an active internet connection. So BYKI and I are not getting on.

Yeah, someone else pointed that out last time. I suggest you fork out the dough for their actual software which is more flexible.
