What the experts say about the Talking Books:
“The Talking Book (English-learning-Igbo) Book 1 by Mavis Computel Ltd. is a remarkable contribution to linguistic pedagogy, especially in relation to the teaching of indigenous languages; in this case the Igbo language.

The book has a total of twenty-one (21) chapters and extensive exercises in the form of games. The main topics covered include Igbo speech sounds, grammar, semantics, socialization and folklore. The use of the English language makes the book readily accessible to both Igbo and foreign language learners. The approach is simple and very user friendly. The variety of Igbo used, generally is the standard Igbo (SI) which is the variety used for teaching the language in schools; used in the media and also in gatherings involving Igbo people from different dialect backgrounds. The Talking Book is ideal for beginners in Igbo language learning.

Mavis Computel’s Talking Book (English-learning-Igbo) Book 1 can be aptly described as a portable, user-friendly language teaching workstation.”
