Whether you are travelling to Albania, learning the language, or almost any other needs, you will need a dictionary. Buy Albanian-English/English-Albanian Dictionary and Phrasebook if you're on the move. It's a complete dictionary in a smaller size, ideal for the traveller. Buy Spoken Albanian . A new course book that comes with audio cassettes. These books are sold in association with Help support this website by shopping through these links until I figure out how to become wealthy without a job. If you have any ideas, I'll listen. It doesn't even have to be legal! See all of my recomended books for learning Albanian and travelling in Albania.
