Where does Learn German: By Reading Fantasy (German Edition) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

4th

What other book might you compare Learn German: By Reading Fantasy (German Edition) to and why?

I can think of no other comparison as far as language acquisition. It is similar to some romance novels.

What about Lidia Buonfino and Emily Durante ’s performance did you like?

The narrators were enthusiastic and skilled at creating different character voices.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Learning a language through reading is a unique idea I have never seen before.

Any additional comments?

"Learn German: By Reading Fantasy " is a creative approach to language acquisition."

I have never seen language acquisition done this way. The author uses a fantasy romantic adventure novel as the format for learning. For those who enjoy romance novels and fantasies, this is a fun way to get acquainted with a second language.

The audiobook features a friendly dramatic reader narrating each chapter. The chapters are each read in German first, followed by English. Readers are able to listen to the accent and unique sounds of each language. I think this format would benefit readers acquiring either language. Perhaps a combination of listening to an audiobook along with reading the ebook may help further the knowledge of either language.

There are hours of content in the audio book, presenting a huge opportunity to learn many fun new words! I would imagine with enough practice, time, and patience, this book would assist in learning languages. This is a really neat idea!
