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!

A Great Fresher

I bought this book as a refresher after having lived in Germany for a year. I'm now back in the US but have no one to keep my basic skills intact. The glossaries are easy to reference when reading short stories. Great audiobook for a beginner that is not overwhelming.

Excellent

The stories are interesting and I've learned a lot from it. The narrator is also good. But he spoke a bit too fast, I wonder if a beginner can catch his speed.

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!

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.
