Kannada learning book - Learn Kannada As Fast As You Like[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]
Here are some ideas (some based on German tutorials) for a Kannada learning book. Not sure if any already exist. Its on my todo list to come up with something like this in the future - but noting the points here atleast for a start.
I think a good language learning book must not be like a boring text book, it must be a well designed with the following concepts in it:
-- unconventional - why have every single page in exactly the same format, same font? why not some pages looking like a scrapbook, some concepts presented as mindmaps instead of as a buletted list or tree structure, some tooltips jumping out like hyperlinks in a page. (Of course the idea is not to overdo this but to only have a certain acceptable degree of unconventionality - because such things must not end up becoming a distraction from the main topic!)
-- colorful - lots of high quality photographs and art
-- interactive - maybe crosswords or other word games
-- story telling - must have outline a very interesting story either for different chapters or maybe a single one througout the book, definitely the first one might be better. or else atleast maybe some characters defined in the beginning, and different anecdotes throughout the book.
-- humourous - definitely must have a good sense of humor making for easy reading - including some comics, jokes and local slang as well.
