    Story
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It gives you a thrill, almost a 'high', when you realize you are able to speak in a foreign language.


    Any additional comments?

    A very easy, fast & convenient way to start speaking German.The thing I appreciate most about bite sized German audio presentation is the fact that they don’t speak real fast and they pronounce the words so that you can always understand and practice what is bring said in German. I mostly listen at the gym and while jogging near home and have made great progress in just a few weeks.The way they do the lessons on the audio makes it pretty simple to learn just using the audio program alone but combined with a basic German book the results are really incredible. Back in college while struggling, and I mean struggling, through German you would have never convinced me that I could learn so much German so fast.I recommend this learn German program without any hesitation to anyone wanting to speak German fast and easy. I'm really learning to speak German!

    Story

    Took a college french class and no one could understand a work I said in French at the end of the class. This helped me say the words and not worry about spelling or grammar. The french have an annoying way of not pronouncing the end of most words and conjugated verbs all sound alike to me. Pimsleur just put them in sentences I could understand then reviewed them often. This worked out so well I eventually bought Phase 1, 2 and 3. Now I can actually carry on a very basic conversation and understand a fair amount of conversation in french. I did listen to each section every day and sometimes repeated the section. French does not sink into your head automatically, but if you just listen and repeat lessons each day it is pretty amazing what sticks. I did dishes, laundry, went to the market or ran errands while listening. Made boring chores more interesting and learned basic French.

    "Alphabetical" is a pleasant read/listen, and, unlike many books about linguistics, seems well grounded in actual facts. Author Michael Rosen reads it marvelously in his British-but-not-posh accent. With this book you get an interesting and educational, if not very profound, look at alphabets and other phonetic/linguistic phenomena.

    By the way, Rosen tells the reader to consult "the PDF" several times for written examples of alphabets, etc., which he refers to. This file can be found on the Audible.com page for this audiobook, at the end of the Publisher's Summary. Just click where it says "Download the accompanying reference guide."

    From minding your Ps and Qs to wondering why X should mark the spot, Alphabetical is a book for everyone who loves words and language. Whether it's how letters are arranged on keyboards or Viking runes, textspeak or zip codes, this book will change the way you think about letters forever. How on earth did we fix upon our 26 letters? What do they really mean? And how did we come to write them down in the first place? Michael Rosen takes you on an unforgettable adventure through the history of the alphabet in 26 vivid chapters, fizzing with personal anecdotes and fascinating facts.

    More Stories for English is a collection selected with a pedagogical interest in mind... to give new English speakers to listen to in a both interesting and progressive way. It follows Stories for English for developing English speakers. Most learners of English never make it to books or even stories. They either use or don't use their command of English to some extent in the course of their job and leave it at that. All the same, teachers regularly get requests for books from their students, and here is a good start.
