Solid Advice

If you are at all interested in learning the German language I feel this gives a good introduction and will provide a solid access to a couple thousand words allowing one to move on to other texts.

Highly recommended

Any additional comments?

I find that more modern language books often avoid the academic and more traditional way of teaching language, which makes learning slower and more difficult. This wonderful book will have you being able to speak and write in German from the very first lesson. Highly recommended.

Excellent resource and very portable

Overall, a solid pick at a reasonable price. As with any language-learning resource, you will get as much out of it as you put into it. It is best used as an additional resource to whatever you may be using to learn.

A classy German phrase book

Any additional comments?

This book is very good at explaining grammar rules and how to structure proper sentences. The audio CD is very helpful to know if you're pronouncing words properly.

quick summary

This book is actually pretty good if you are looking to actually understand the German language. It isn't just a "useful phrases" book for tourists but it goes in depth about each topic it mentions. If you're a complete beginner, I highly recommend this book and if you're an intermediate learner, this book can be a good source to skim through quickly.

This little book went everywhere with me for the first month I was living in Germany. Great little book. It was super helpful when ordering food. I also down loaded a translating app which was helpful as well.

I’m happy with it

I found it perfect! It's simple and you can make associations with the pictures. I live in Brazil and it's really hard to find good books to learn German and even Japanese. But this book is a treasure, every student need to have one!

very comprehensive


It begins with the German alphabet and moves in an organized manner to phrases and terms one would need to use on a trip to a German speaking country: how to book a hotel, how to ask for directions, and so on.
