It isn't easy using only a book, however, this book has been more helpful than either of us thought it would be. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to learn German.

Happy I found this book!!!

Any additional comments?

It was a great supplement and is organized in a way that made me look forward to doing the next lesson on the next trip. The material is a little dated, but I found that to be part of the appeal.

One of the best

This book is perfect for everyday use. The classroom has its place, but this is a much more practical book for learning German that is used out and about!

you can dip into lessons

I much prefer this book to the newer styles which spend far too much time explaining (in English) the language. Well worth the money from beginning to end to be useful.

Solid Advice

If you are at all interested in learning the German language I feel this gives a good introduction and will provide a solid access to a couple thousand words allowing one to move on to other texts.

Amazing just like Amazon

The pronunciation guide is useful, too, and better than I've seen in other books. Overall, this book is great and very inexpensive. I wish they had this method available for other languages.

what's important is that it is successful in getting you to learn and remember the German language. It's very helpful to read everything out loud, as well.

Very comprehensive

However, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who even has an inkling of interest in learning a foreign language, specifically, German. This is a very good book for an excellent price!

Highly recommended

Any additional comments?

I find that more modern language books often avoid the academic and more traditional way of teaching language, which makes learning slower and more difficult. This wonderful book will have you being able to speak and write in German from the very first lesson. Highly recommended.

German speaking skills

If it's worth their while, and they're willing to speak Hochdeutch in reply, we can converse. I expect that when I'm finished with this book, I'll be quite fluent. A great introduction to the German language.

Excellent resource and very portable

Overall, a solid pick at a reasonable price. As with any language-learning resource, you will get as much out of it as you put into it. It is best used as an additional resource to whatever you may be using to learn.

Helpful travel tool

I say it's a good gamble; incredibly helpful at best and a useful reference (to augment other texts) at worst. To those just learning a second language, don't give up. The hardest part of learning a language is learning how you personally learn another language best.

A classy German phrase book

Any additional comments?

This book is very good at explaining grammar rules and how to structure proper sentences. The audio CD is very helpful to know if you're pronouncing words properly.
