    The best learning aid I've ever come across. Fun, engaging, good flow and rhythm. Would recommend for anyone willing to invest the time and effort to embark on a language learning adventure.

    Story
    "Good for Berginners"
    Would you listen to Learn German With Stories: Café in Berlin ? 10 Short Stories for Beginners again? Why?

    This book is great for people who are just beginning to learn German.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It has humour, and the plot is well suited to somebody learning German.


    What does André Klein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Hearing dialogue is vital to language learning. I read the physical book first then listened (many times) to the audiobook it in order to "train my ear" for German. Then I re-read it aloud to practice pronunciation. It is the best extracurricular tool I have come across so far and I use a lot of internet/audiobooks etc...


    Any additional comments?

    This is for beginners, it may be too easy or slow if you can understand normal paced conversation. The dialogue is deliberately slow. Fantastic if you need that but may be off putting if you don't.

    "Great way to learn "

    Find the book online so you can follow along. The vocabulary words are bolded in the dialogue. Their definitions are included at the end of each chapter. I recommend adding them to a vocabulary list like the one found in dict.cc to quiz you. Viel Glück!

    Story
    "Hoping for more from the same author"
    What did you love best about Learn German With Stories: Café in Berlin ? 10 Short Stories for Beginners?

    The narration matches the text in the ebook (also available in paperback). Each chapter is short, entertaining, and easy for a beginner. Mr. Klein is listed as the narrator, so you're hearing a native speaker read German. There are helpful (and non-instrusive) sound effects to accompany parts of the text. For instance, you might hear a crowd cheering when the text is about soccer. It never drowns out the narration. The narration is read very slowly, not at normal speed. This is helpful, but it would be even more helpful if the Audible book contained two parts, with the second part containing the narration read at normal speed.


    What other book might you compare Learn German With Stories: Café in Berlin ? 10 Short Stories for Beginners to and why?

    I don't think there is anything quite like this book or this series. They are very professionally done and the prices are extremely reasonable. You can listen while you're reading, or you can listen without the printed text, to test your listening comprehension.


    Which character – as performed by André Klein – was your favorite?

    He reads with enough expression to make it interesting, but not over-the-top, which would interfere with the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, it's not intended for that.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read and re-read the ebook versions of Mr. Klein's books, and the Audible version is a worthwhile addition. I would like it if the narration were read a second time at a much faster speed. This would only add about 20-30 minutes to the audiobook and it would not be necessary to include the sound effects, so it shouldn't be hard to do. I am looking forward to Audible versions of Mr. Klein's other books.

    "Great material for beginners and refreshers"

    I've been refreshing my rusty German hearing understanding and found this to be of great help. I would recommend it to advanced beginners who have a grasp of basic vocab already.

    "So rewarding!"

    It's lovely to be able to listen to a story in German and understand it. Thank you! I hope you are going to release the whole series. Btw, even though I bought the Kindle books, it doesn't suggest or link the audio book to the Kindle one. I had to find it in the audio book section independently.

    "Clear crisp pronunciation at a sedate speed"

    I have the book, but haven't read it all yet. My approach has been to listen to Mr Klein's recording so that when I read the book I will be able to imagine how it should sound as I read it. Some might find his pronunciation slow, but he is trying to meet the needs of absolute beginners learning German and I found it clear and easily followable.

    I have no hesitation in recommending it to early learners of German.

    "Hearings in German"

    I enjoyed hearing in the German language. It is helping me to be able to understand audibly the language , which I feel is just as, if not more, important than being able to read it.
