When I started listening to this audio-book I was slightly put out, since I haven't studied German in over ten years now. After a short while however, things really started to come together. After about half an hour I actually started to begin building up a decent picture of the stories, first by picking out the key words and then by inferring some that I hadn't heard before. I was actually very impressed, I thought I'd all but lost my initially limited knowledge of the language, but the stories are structured in such away to make them very accessible. I'm not sure how somebody with zero initial understanding of the language would cope, but i'm by no means conversational and this was definitely beneficial to me.
