Learn another language the way you learnt your own.
You learnt your own language naturally and enjoyably: now you can learn German in the same way.
This is the first two hours of the eight-hour German Foundation Course. In this original, ground-breaking studio recording, join Michel Thomas himself, linguist, psychologist, and language teacher to the stars, and two students in a live lesson and within the first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases. You will learn the language with the students, hearing both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the session.
Join the millions of people worldwide who have learnt a new language with the Michel Thomas Method.

"A genuinely new way of learning a language." (Daily Mail)
"Michel Thomas is a precious find indeed." (The Guardian)
"Learning Spanish with Michel was the most extraordinary learning experience of my life: it was unforgettable." (Emma Thompson)
I speak German, but my husband wants to learn the basics so I bought this for him. The Michel Thomas Method is a great way to pick up the basics of language structure along with a handful of vocabulary.
The instructor on this one had to spend too much time teaching the students to pronounce the words ich, mich & nicht. The male student's sighs and huffs distracted from the lesson.
The only problem I've noticed is that this teaches only the formal address (Sie) and not the informal (du), at least in the introductory course. However, I understand that the format used actually simplifies the language and makes it easier to learn.
