Please include a faster reading in future versions

It would be perfect if you included a regular speed version after you've listened to the slower one. I play it at a faster speed but it's not quite the same.

A must for anyone wanting to learn German

André Klein is definitely one of my favorite authors. I've been reading this series since I started teaching myself German. It's fun, interesting and useful. You can feel your grasp of the language getting better. The early struggles give way to a great picture as your comprehension improves. I find myself reading the series over and over again. To hear it in German and follow along helps tremendously as I don't have anyone to bounce my German off of. Am I pronouncing it right? This completely helps. Danke André für deiner Buchen!

easy to follow for a beginner!

this is a great way to learn German. the narrator speaks slow enough to identify all the words.

Great for first time German readers.

Loved the story and the way it was narrated. Real-life adventures ww can all relate to. The story read quite slowly and with emotion. I listened to it while also reading thr story on my kindle. That was the best combination for me, having my brain getting used to this not-so-easy language through both my eyes and ears. The level of this book is A1. I'd done a couple of months of traditional studying before getting to this book, so could understand all the sentence structures and whatnot. But definitely learned lots of new things too!

Very helpful in German language learning.

I'm pleased to have found this sort of story both for reading and listening. It's more interesting than most generally available.

Nice and practical

I learned to distinguish many different German words thanks to the slow tempo used in reading the text

A helpful , pleasant tool for learning German

I like this series. It is especially helpful to listen to right before class or Sta!mmtisch, as it helps switch my brain into gear to find German words and use German grammar.

Very helpful German - really annoying muzak!

Any additional comments?

Unbelievably annoying, maniacal and loud harmonica 'muzak' suddenly bursts against your eardrums - after listening to the calm and soothing voice of the reader this makes for a real shock and has me lurching to the mute button as fast as I possibly can. Starting to feel real dread when starting and finishing the audiobooks as I need to prepare to stop this really irritating sound! It really does put me off listening.

Worth downloading

Normally, a language textbook or phrasebook is not worth reviewing and strictly speaking this is a storybook, but there is something novel and engaging about Andre Klein's approach to the typical situational language learning formula. The story of Dino is off-beat enough to engage the listener who needs some just basic knowledge of the language ( A1+) to be able to follow and in doing so and learn/ refresh his/her German. its only an hours as well which is manageable.
I will now download another in the series.

Okay if you already know some German

You need to know quite a lot of German vocabulary to follow the story. If you already know sufficient German, you might find the pace of narration a little too slow.
I think this will be quite good at helping me with my syntax.

Great for Learning German

Who was your favorite character and why?

Dino and maybe the guy in the lost luggage office at the airport

What about André Klein’s performance did you like?

Clear and humorous

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The feckless but good-natured Dino knocks around Frankfurt for a bit.

Any additional comments?

Nicely written, gently humorous, subtle and appropriate sound effects. This is to help beginners learn German. It does just that. NB I nearly didn't buy it because the audio sample seemed really slow, certainly slower than book 1. and it might be, but only in places (the sample maybe isn't representative) but it really didn't matter.

Really useful learning aid

Whilst it won't win any awards for literature, as an aid to me learning German it was really helpful and I shall definitely try some of the other titles. I'm also using Duolingo and am at about 30% at the moment and could follow pretty much all of this.
