Summary

If you want to learn German in less time while also enjoying yourself, then pay attention....

How can you learn to write well?

How can you expand your vocabulary?

How can you improve your ability to express your thoughts and ideas?

How can you improve your German language skills in a pleasant and varied way?

One reasonable way exists without a doubt: Read as much as possible! For this reason, we warmly recommend that you read novels or texts in German, if you want to learn more words and improve your verbal or written expression.

Many people think that you have to have a very high level of language skills to read a book in another language - but that assumption is completely wrong! A small amount of words can be enough to understand a text as a whole. From the very beginning of learning a new language, you can devote yourself to reading stories in German.

This audiobook is a very worthwhile and effective way to learn German. Your vocabulary will be refreshed immediately, and you will be able to practice. You will hear sentence by sentence in German with a translation along with each paragraph or sentence - no need to look up unknown words! Through the audiobook, you learn how to understand everything!

This audiobook is recommended for beginners and advanced students who want to continue and expand their knowledge. Learning German with our short stories is so easy and enjoyable that brave beginners without prior knowledge can easily use this method. Our short stories are so interesting and unique, that you will enjoy every bit of it and ask for more!

So if you want to learn German while having fun, listen to this audiobook!

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Too Much Helpful

This audiobook is a great tool to aid in learning German. It includes a glossary that translates the German words into English and the audio version helps you understand how to pronounce the words. I like this format for learning a new language.

Good Helpful Book

I think people with a little bit of knowledge of the German language would have an easier time using this book just because they might have a better understanding of how to pronounce some of the letters and sentence structure. This might make a good intermediate audiobook.

Very good stories

The stories vary, as do the lessons taught. This is a very fine introduction to German, appropriate for all age levels, and a book much needed at this time in our national status!

Excellent format for learning German

What lovely, charming books these are. Not too easy, not too hard, they provide a distinct thrill when you’re able to read a paragraph at a time without looking in the dictionary for help. Just perfect for the beginner German student, or any lover of languages.

This collection of short stories with accompanying vocabulary lists does an excellent job of helping the Intermediate student step out of their comfort zone in order to progress in German.

BEST AROUND!!!! WITHOUT QUESTION!!!!!

Highly recommended. It's not something you go through one time and speak German. It's a whole program. Learning a language takes years. This is a wonderful start.
