Great summary of grammar and rules.

My husband and I are not young pups and we want to learn German. Not so easy for someone with no background. The Quick Grammar guide is a handy fast reference and I'd recommend it.

Love this Audible book

I listen and practice with it going to work in the morning. I have a 45 minute commute so it allows me to go through a few chapters. I've completely finished it and I'll be repeating some of these chapters.But the method of learning is very effective.

build vocabulary

I have tried several ways to learn German. While other apps and books build vocabulary or teach sentence structures, none is like what this audio book achieved - it allows me to start speaking German in sentences within a couple of hours. I think it is a great book when used in combination with other methods.

I'm really enjoying this book

I've been listening to this in the car, as I go about my daily life. The first time I listened to it, it was doable but I didn't think I was going to remember much. However the second time I listened to it, it was much easier and all his lessons have sunk in. I'm really enjoying this book and like the idiosyncratic way he teaches.

Easy introduction

There is no single course that will "do it all". You will need to expose yourself to a whole lot of different material. I'm still chopping away, learning vocabulary, reading books and listening to Amazon Audible - but I've come a long way.The Author takes the opposite approach: He explicitly explains everything. He is very methodical.

Excellent introduction for beginners

The author explains the connections between English and German, and how much the two languages share. He shows connections which I have not seen before, but which now seem so obvious. He gives useful rules for constructing sentences.

it has some useful information.

I wanted something I could learn from while driving long commutes but without the book it is difficult to catch some of the pronunciations on the CD. Used while NOT driving and in conjunction with the book, it has some useful information.

Pronunciation tips will help you speak

Pronunciation tips will help you speak German accurately. A must-have for anyone learning the language. I received this book in a reasonable length of time. The book is used but very clean and I look forward to using it on my trip to Germany.

Very practical.

EXACTLY what I was looking for. Covers everything from directions, to bank transactions, even health concerns! Very practical. Will have to print out some lesson because I can already tell I’m going to use this a lot!

Awful!

It seems like the narrator is racing to get through as many phrases as possible. He doesn't break the phrases down, there is no repetition, and there really isn't enough time to repeat his phrases. If you're trying to learn German, then the Paul Nobel audio courses will serve you better. I already took 2 of them, but I wanted to try something new and get a different perspective. I only used this book for roughly 15 minutes when I couldn't handle it anymore. I want my money back.

So Much Helpful

There's a lot of helpful information on this guide. I'm not ready to comfortably walk the streets of Berlin yet, but it makes a good reference for German language learning.

I Suggest It

I would also suggest All-Audio German (listen to it as much as you can, to perfect your pronunciation, you'll be glad you did). I also bought the English-German dictionary...for my Palm - this is an ABSOLUTE MUST if you are going to be going to Germany and you are serious about getting more fluent.

Awesome Way To Learn German

There are many dialogues on practical subjects, performed by native speakers of course, and read very fast for the most part, so it should be great for comprehension at conversational speed. However, it would be helpful to have it done once at a slower speed so as to be sure of correct pronunciation.

If you are learning German this is not bad and reasonably useful. I have used a lot of different learn German programs and they all have their good points. This one is as good as any.

better choice

If you look you will see different pronunciation from different parts of the book. Does great with the menu guide and mini-dictionary that is very useful. Fits in your pocket for travels and have used this book for numerous countries.

Nice

Teaches useful words and everyday phrases instead of teaching how to conjugate every verb.. CD has a good pace and nice voice and it follows the book so u can see what u are hearing then the book is wry good for travel support..
