Lonely Planet Ethiopian Amharic Phrasebook by Tilahun Kebede, Catherine Snow. Voices woven through staccato rhythms lead you to a narrow alley.

Amharic is the most widely spoken language in Ethiopia and therefore the most useful for travelers to this destination to know. Co-authored by a native Amharic speaker, this phrasebook features an easy-to-follow layout and makes an obvious companion to Lonely Planet's Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti.
  • I was able to impress my Ethiopian friends many times with lessons and tidbits from this book. It was actually useful, fun, and easy to use. It features very practical information about a language and culture that is otherwise difficult to access.

  • This is a great book, I'm still struggling with learning the language but it has been helpful in this regard.

  • Actually I didn't use the book very much, as my surroundings were almost all English or Oromo-speaking. Before spending much time on a learning a language to use in Ethiopia, be sure to check out the location. Since the Amhara's are no longer the dominant tribe, their language may be less useful. Tigrayans are now in power and Oromo are the largest language group.

  • I bought this book in Addis Ababa, in the Hilton hotel, after attempting to use a couple of the locally written 'learn amharic' books, which I found difficult to try and work out pronunciation of some words. To my surprise this book was published in my home city 'down under'-Melbourne. The copy I bought is the second edition with the cover illustration: "Spot the Blue Donkey" by Patrick Marris.

    I found reading this book was easier for me personally; it assisted in pronunciation of some words and I always had a lot of Ethiopian friends who'd gladly help out with the correction of any mis-pronunciations and also to explain the differences in words relating to gender-if you're talking to a man or a lady. Mainly because Amharic and Aussie English are like cheese and chalk.

    I also liked the boxed texts and cultural notes, which give some insight into the Ethiopian culture. Like anything new, you've got to give it a go to get the confidence to carry on. The book is also a very handy size to carry around in a shirt pocket or small bag. Good on you Tilahun.

  • I bought this book with me the first time I ever went to Ethiopia. It actually wasn't very helpful to me in helping me speak Amharic and there were a lot of mistakes that were pointed out to me in the book. However the fact that the words are also written out in Amharic are most helpful because you can always point to the word if you have trouble and someone will be willing to help you pronunciate the correct word in Amharic. If you want to learn some very basic words then this book is good. However if you want to speak phrases or sentences, that book does not exist just yet. This book also does a good job of telling basic facts about the culture which was very helpful to me during my first trip to Ethiopia. Overall I'd say that it is a good book and was well worth my money. I would say that others also enjoyed this book because when I left Ethiopia I could not find my book ;-)

  • This phrasebook has lots of useful grammatical information. However, many of the examples are literal translations of the English. The results are phrases that are not good or natural Amharic. Instead, they teach you how to sound like a foreigner. Though there is an Ethiopian listed as one of the authors, it is clear that he felt pressured to produce a prodcut that was close to the English.

  • This is a helpful phrasebook, usable without any previous knowledge of Amharic. As I am not a native English speaker, I appreciate the way the sounds used are described in the beginning of the book. It is well organized, with different, logical, chapters; i.e. the possibility to find the phrase I am looking for in the chapter where I think it should be is high. The dictionary part is short (as it of course has to be), and I really miss "please" as a word in the dictionary.

  • This guide is terrible if your goal is to speak Amharic. The Achilles heel of this book is that there are no accent marks on the ethiopian phrases. If you read what is in the book there is no way you will come close to saying anything intelligible. On the positive side, all of my Ethiopian friends found this book very helpful for learning English.
