Hugo in Three Months is a range of books and CD’s designed to help you learn a foreign language. Various language courses are available including:
I used the Hugo in Three Months to learn Italian. I made good progress with this, quickly moving on to the Hugo Advanced Language course. The book contains dialogues, vocabulary and explanations of grammar. The CD’s give you a chance to listen to how your new words will sound.
Later, I bought the Hugo in Three Months French as a refresher from what I had learned at school. As I had some knowledge of this language, I purchased on the Hugo in Three Months book, rather than the CD’s as I was familiar with pronunciation.
Hugo in Three Months – German next for me!
I hope to learn a bit of German for my next trip, not so much as I will be visiting Germany, but so many of my “new neighbours” were German on the last trip. I feel it would be nice to be able to say a few words other than “morgen!”
It is good to be able to converse a few words with the locals. Generally speaking, the locals are so impressed by your language skills, they help you along! For a refresher, you might find the book alone to be adequate. Beginners may find the Hugo in Three Months book alongside the CD pack to be more beneficial.
