Mondial example sentences, part 1

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Since the best way to acquaint oneself with a language is to simply see it in action, here is the first section of the Mondial conversation book. As one would expect with a language of its type most of it is perfectly obvious, and so I have left out the English translation for most of them. I simply love the lack of doubled consonants.

So how much total conversational content is there in that book? A quick count shows it to be about 25 times the size of the examples given here.
