Don't throw up your hands in a helpless "Oy, vey" just yet! The Complete Idiot's Guide to Learning Yiddish is your guide to this unique tongue, whether you're tackling rules of grammar or just throwing around some key phrases so you sound a little less goyish. in this Complete Idiot's Guide you get:

  • A fascinating explanation of how and why Yiddish developed.
  • An easy introduction to the Yiddish alphabet, as well as to the distinctive sound of Yiddish.
  • All the Yiddish you'll need for communicating with family and friends or for bargain-hunting on New York's Lower East Side.
