The On the Tip of Your Tongue series identifies words in 11 key categories, so you can learn to be an effective speaker in that language. This series is productive, because you can approach a language from both sides: the language you wish to learn, with the words in that language first, followed by your own language with each word spoken twice. In many ways students find this approach less stressful, because they can hear the new language and think about the proper word in their own language; using both approaches in tandem works best for most people. The 11 categories are Greetings, Accommodations, Counting, In Case of Need, Days and Months, Giving You the Time of Day, Food, Getting There, Mail-Money-Phone, Sites-Shopping-Entertainment, and Questions.
