Hey that would be too nice if you could tell me the titles of the books (I assume that they're in English -,-)
I know I've taken some time, I hope you didn't reach intermediate level inbetween
, but I did get a closer look at that book and, unfortunately, it turned out that it's not a self-study book. It's a course book for beginners, everything is in Slovene, except for the instructions (such as "fill in the gaps, answer the questions" and similar). The instructions are even in four languages, but otherwise there are no translations and no explanations. There are grammar overviews and exercises for each unit at the end of the book. The workbook is in fact a teacher's book, but there's also a CD available. The language in the book sounds natural and it seems to be useful as well. It's called A,B,C ... 1,2,3 gremo (by Nataša Pirih Svetina, Andreja Ponikvar). I wouldn't recommend using this book if you don't have someone who could help you.
