This is the best learning program I've come across! I've been stuck at an intermediate level of knowledge, but with only the speaking skills of a beginner--until now. This method has helped me to develop more self confidence due to its "back and forth" English/German explanations of every day usage. Learning a language is one thing; speaking it is another. This method truly reinforces and builds on the learner's developing language skills. It clarifies various ways of saying things. For example, "I want, I need, I would like, I'll take, I would very much like, I'll have...something to drink." Until now, I've had a difficult time recalling the most appropriate words to use. I've always known that there are more ways than one to say things (in English) but something in my brain told me that, in another language, such as German, there was just one way to say it. This program has removed a mental block for me. I'll be watching for more advanced versions of "German Guaranteed" with its unique reinforcement method.
I have tried a few other German language learning audio books, and this is a refreshing change. The use of words and phrases to build sentences makes this audio book easy and enjoyable to listen to.
