Pathetic.

Bad recording and hours of listening to a man speaking in English. Do not waste your time and money.

Disappointing

This book took me back to those school days where emphasis was on grammar and not getting you started with some conversational German. This one is hard work, avoid it at all costs!

Full Stars

The easiest way to learn a new language. I’m taking it slow and revisiting regularly. It’s not much repetitive so you catch on quickly.

Great Value

It is impossible to estimate the value of the ability to use an additional language. I think it is more than the ability to speak and comprehend speakers. Learning gives my brain a good workout. I love learning anything now more than when I was a child and I was required to learn.

So Simple and Good

Simply put, this is, absolutely, the best German course in existence! It's amazing! By nature, I am a procrastinator. I usually start something but wind up losing steam and quitting before I reach the finish line.

Well Organised

I haven't gotten too far into it, but I like this reasonably-priced book very much. The lessons are brief and well organized. Explanations and examples are clear. I do wish, though, that there were more exercises for self-evaluation.

Hard Copy needed, too fast pace monologue.

I gave up listening after 6th chapter. will drown you in grammer and read you e multiple choice and fill in the blanks questions. Writer shows knowledge bit no intention to really teach. Not worth the time.

Not a stand alone audiobook

The hard copy is required. This may be a good accompaniment but it is not suited for audio book only.

You become fluent and confident

I like this little book. I have found it to be a great aid when "re-studying" the German I learned and spoke so many years ago. I would recommend it for new students of the language and for those who want to re-visit the German they learned some time ago.

Should not be Audible alone. requires book.

Well read, but requires a visual copy of the book to understand properly. During the introduction this is not apparent, but swiftly becomes so as in enters the first few chapters.

Not Well Formatted for Audio

Badly formatted for an audiobook. Directly references printed material, gives fill-in-the-blank and references highlighted words. Gives long lists of grammatical variations with little explanation. Uses complex example sentences without providing translation. I wanted something I could listen to in the car that would teach basics on a practical level, for travel. The approach in this book is just not suited for listening.

The content is fine, but hard to follow

This doesn't translate well to an audiobook in my opinion. it's really hard for me to follow along and actually learn anything.

Easy to understand

Great breakdown of the German language. I like that each chapter has exercises and there are sections. Good to hear the language as well as listening to it.

Confidence Builder

I found the explanations easily understandable, the little fact blips are interesting and the whole book is written to be an easy read, and there are many vocabulary words to learn. I found this book at the library and ended up purchasing it for myself.

Truly A Helpful Book

I usually have a difficult time when trying to learn a foreign language but with this book, I'm learning at a fast past the instructions are easy to understand and I'm already noticing situations where I could talk to people in Germany.
