Hard Copy needed, too fast pace monologue.

I gave up listening after 6th chapter. will drown you in grammer and read you e multiple choice and fill in the blanks questions. Writer shows knowledge bit no intention to really teach. Not worth the time.

You become fluent and confident

I like this little book. I have found it to be a great aid when "re-studying" the German I learned and spoke so many years ago. I would recommend it for new students of the language and for those who want to re-visit the German they learned some time ago.

Not a stand alone audiobook

The hard copy is required. This may be a good accompaniment but it is not suited for audio book only.

Easy to understand

Great breakdown of the German language. I like that each chapter has exercises and there are sections. Good to hear the language as well as listening to it.

Confidence Builder

I found the explanations easily understandable, the little fact blips are interesting and the whole book is written to be an easy read, and there are many vocabulary words to learn. I found this book at the library and ended up purchasing it for myself.

Should not be Audible alone. requires book.

Well read, but requires a visual copy of the book to understand properly. During the introduction this is not apparent, but swiftly becomes so as in enters the first few chapters.

Not Well Formatted for Audio

Badly formatted for an audiobook. Directly references printed material, gives fill-in-the-blank and references highlighted words. Gives long lists of grammatical variations with little explanation. Uses complex example sentences without providing translation. I wanted something I could listen to in the car that would teach basics on a practical level, for travel. The approach in this book is just not suited for listening.

The content is fine, but hard to follow

This doesn't translate well to an audiobook in my opinion. it's really hard for me to follow along and actually learn anything.

Another good tool to learn German

Another good tool to learn German. In the category of easily-portable-paper-bound books, it's a 4.5 for me to learn a language you need to hear it & speak it.

Understandable

This audiobook allows you to do this. You won't be ready to write thick books in German, but you will have a basic grasp of the language.

Pathetic.

Bad recording and hours of listening to a man speaking in English. Do not waste your time and money.

Disappointing

This book took me back to those school days where emphasis was on grammar and not getting you started with some conversational German. This one is hard work, avoid it at all costs!

A confused book

Firstly, the approach to learning German in this book is very academic. It focusses on complex grammar rules before providing you with a vocabulary to use them with. This is fine for someone studying German as an intellectual interest but is a wholly inefficient and dull way to learn conversational German.

Secondly, It starts with some "fill in the blank" exercises without teaching you a single word of German which makes it feel like the book intends for you to just stab around in the dark until you start getting things right. Not a very satisfying or inspirational way to learn.

Finally, the exercises in this book are very much geared towards a reading/writing education, which seems odd for an audiobook where the primary medium is speaking/listening.

In conclusion I think this book is ok as a supplement to a better audiobook, but it is confused about what it wants to be. It's a school textbook forced to be an audiobook and aimed at novice learners with some (all be it minimal) German experience.

A very good book for a beginner or intermediate for revision. Combined with other methods of learning it is one of the best books on the subject

Good Enough

This book is great at reaching introductory parts to the language, four out of five stars because some of the example sentences made no sense. Overall, it is a helpful book for the German learners.
