Great way to learn

Find the book online so you can follow along. The vocabulary words are bolded in the dialogue. Their definitions are included at the end of each chapter. I recommend adding them to a vocabulary list like the one found in dict.cc to quiz you. Viel Glück!

Hoping for more from the same author

What did you love best about Learn German With Stories: Café in Berlin ? 10 Short Stories for Beginners?

The narration matches the text in the ebook (also available in paperback). Each chapter is short, entertaining, and easy for a beginner. Mr. Klein is listed as the narrator, so you're hearing a native speaker read German. There are helpful (and non-instrusive) sound effects to accompany parts of the text. For instance, you might hear a crowd cheering when the text is about soccer. It never drowns out the narration. The narration is read very slowly, not at normal speed. This is helpful, but it would be even more helpful if the Audible book contained two parts, with the second part containing the narration read at normal speed.

What other book might you compare Learn German With Stories: Café in Berlin ? 10 Short Stories for Beginners to and why?

I don't think there is anything quite like this book or this series. They are very professionally done and the prices are extremely reasonable. You can listen while you're reading, or you can listen without the printed text, to test your listening comprehension.

Which character – as performed by André Klein – was your favorite?

He reads with enough expression to make it interesting, but not over-the-top, which would interfere with the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, it's not intended for that.

Any additional comments?

I've read and re-read the ebook versions of Mr. Klein's books, and the Audible version is a worthwhile addition. I would like it if the narration were read a second time at a much faster speed. This would only add about 20-30 minutes to the audiobook and it would not be necessary to include the sound effects, so it shouldn't be hard to do. I am looking forward to Audible versions of Mr. Klein's other books.

Great material for beginners and refreshers

I've been refreshing my rusty German hearing understanding and found this to be of great help. I would recommend it to advanced beginners who have a grasp of basic vocab already.

Awesome audio file!!

What made the experience of listening to Learn German With Stories: Café in Berlin ? 10 Short Stories for Beginners the most enjoyable?

I highly recommend purchasing this audio file and use it with the book. My German comprehension has improved so much, I plan to buy the entire series through kindle and the audio files. My tips are to read a story first without the audio, then read with the audio, then read one more time but this time look up the words you do not know, then finally read through a fourth time with the audio. Do these steps for each story and you will be amazed at how much vocabulary you will remember.

What did you like best about this story?

Easy to read and just the right amount of humor to make it enjoyable.

Which scene was your favorite?

Multikulti story was my favorite.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, just happy that it is helping me to comprehend German better.

So rewarding!

It's lovely to be able to listen to a story in German and understand it. Thank you! I hope you are going to release the whole series. Btw, even though I bought the Kindle books, it doesn't suggest or link the audio book to the Kindle one. I had to find it in the audio book section independently.

Clear crisp pronunciation at a sedate speed

I have the book, but haven't read it all yet. My approach has been to listen to Mr Klein's recording so that when I read the book I will be able to imagine how it should sound as I read it. Some might find his pronunciation slow, but he is trying to meet the needs of absolute beginners learning German and I found it clear and easily followable.

I have no hesitation in recommending it to early learners of German.

Good for beginners learning German

I've now listened to four of these short stories and find they're a very good way to add variety to the language course I'm following. They may be read a bit slowly for some learners but you can speed up the dialogue if you want to with the Audible app. I find this series very helpful and will be on the lookout for more.

Great approach to learning german

Excellent if you have a rudimentary vocab. Would be perfect if it simultaneously displayed text.
