The simple way to learn German....

If you are curious about the German language, eager to know interesting things about Germany’s culture and its people, or are just an ambitious learner looking for new short stories to add to your digital library, then this audiobook would be a great fit for you!

This audiobook features several short stories in the Germanic tongue along with their English translations. There are also sections dedicated to some grammatical and critical notes on the texts. The purpose of this audiobook is not only to inform the listener about the German language, but also to entertain, and this short story collection does just that with ease. The topics these stories cover range from private-detective work to war, and from fairy-tale pancakes running from their evil captors to simple house tours. You won’t want to miss out on any of it.

This audiobook is intended for use by beginner- to intermediate-level German language learners, so the listener need not be intimidated. Here, he or she will not find any technical jargon fit for a professional linguist or any esoteric German fit for a native German speaker. As was mentioned before, the purpose of this audiobook is to inform and entertain, not to prepare the listener for a doctoral dissertation on German literature. 

The stories included in this audiobook were written by a number of contemporary authors in a number of genres and styles. They are as follows:

  • "Daisy Macbeth" by Crystal Jones
  • "Die Andernacher Bäckersjungen" by H.A. Guerber
  • "Einkaufen im Supermarkt" (Anonymous)
  • "Unser Haus" (Anonymous)
  • "Die Suche Nach Lorna" by Crystal Jones
  • "Der Hausvater" by H.A. Guerber
  • "Das Reiterbild in Düsseldorf" by H.A. Guerber
  • "Der Pfannkuchen" by H.A. Guerber

As mentioned before, these stories are not only featured in both English and German, they are also supplemented with additional notes exploring the storytelling elements of each story along with grammatical notes, tips, and such.
