Attended language live yesterday and they had what I thought was an interesting concept. Inter linear books. Its parallel text with the smallest unit possible translated. I think its great as sometimes when I read parallel text:
I have to look words up
I lose track of the original and the translation

Just thought some people on here may find the books interesting website is Interlinearbooks.com

Yes, I bought the French book they offer. I have only used it a little bit. It seems quite nice and well done. I am amazed that interlinear texts are not more popular among publishers of language learning material.

Thank you very much, I find this is quite interesting. I was not at all aware of this learning technique and I plan to order their German book.

I did a Google search of Interlinearbooks.com and, in addition to finding their website, I came across a number reviews and comments.

Subsequently, I conducted a "G-Search" of this, the "old" HTLAL, using "Interlinear" as my criterion and came up with numerous discussion threads. Afterwards, I conducted a similar search of the "new" HTLAL and, while there do not seem be any specific discussion threads on the general subject, I did come across James29's comment in his log.

Vielen Dank!

The original Hamiltonian system books are out there free on the internet in many languages (they are so old there is no copyright).

They attempted to use this forum for advertising when they launched, but the project itself doesn't seem bad.

For Russian speakers, Ilya Frank's method is another great option.

BTW interlinear translations are the ideal first step for LR.

The problem with this company is they are using complicated classical texts which I don't think beginners will
want or find useful

Also I'm dubious whether inter linear reading is good for learning?

They most likely use Public Domain texts, because they don't have to pay royalties to the publishers.

It depends on what kind of language learner you are and the language(s) that you're studying. IMHO, interlinear texts illustrate grammar rules much better than grammar books.

BTW, this forum is pretty much dead. You might want to sign up for the new forum, if you haven't already done so.
