Summary

Specially written to be used on the move and to be stopped and started with ease, this series is ideal for use on the train, in the car, or around the house - in fact anywhere, any time. By the end of this 4-hour, all audio course, the student will have a working vocabulary of some 400 essential words and phrases and will feel confident about speaking (and understanding!) German. Two bilingual coaches individually and jointly take students through this carefully structured, all-audio course with easy-to-understand texts, explanations, examples and speaking practice. No books are used. No 'homework' is required. Everything is learned by listening and speaking. Following the highly successful method of her previous books, the material is presented in the same light-hearted and entertaining style which has made Elisabeth Smith a market leader in language learning for the last 12 years.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Too fast

There is absolutely no way a beginner can learn German from this .

It's far too fast. I'm extremely disappointed as this is my first Audible book.

Unless you already have a good understanding of the language this book is not for you

Too fast

There was too much chat and not enough opportunity to think through what to say. I would have preferred a bit more grammar and a slower pace, but it was still good for expanding vocabulary, as long as you're willing to go through it several times.
