    "Really good for beginer"

    The native German speaker speaks at a natural speed. It is not easy for beginners to understand what is being said. But you can follow text trying to catch as many words as you can to understand. You will be familiar to speech speed after some 20 min. It's slow and clear, so you can hear all syllables was said. It is really good audio material to recommend to friends learning the German language.

    "Building Skill"

    This short book was very entertaining and informational. Reading and listening to these stories furthered my interest in studying German seriously. The availability of flash cards is such a helpful tool. Helped me to build a beginners German vocabulary and grammar skills. Hearing the pronunciations so clearly made following along while learning possible. Thank you for sparking my interest in German and helping me to take the first steps in learning a second foreign language.

    "Perfect listening practice"

    I am currently studying German, and it goes really hard. A lot of rules, and to understand somebody speaking German seemed impossible.
    Then, I found this audiobook. Didn't know if it will help. Turned it on, and Oh God! I could understand some words. After like 5 minutes I could even understand the story line.
    Some of the words I heard I didn't know, but this audiobook gives all of the words with translation and right pronunciation: slow and clear, so I could repeat it.
    I'm totally in love with the book. It helped a lot.

    "Amazing Language Learning Tool"

    First audio book in my collection It's always been a bit hard to learn a language. This is a great way to learn German on the go. Speaker is easy to understand. He speaks the words at a regular conversation pace, and then slow enough so the listener hears which syllables to enunciate.

    "Do it in a German way!"

    I tried books, school, and any other medium to learn at least “basic” German language and none of them caught my attention.

    Tried this app, listened for a minute “thinking oh well I can give this a chance or something”, then another minute, and another, till I almost finished an hour!

    I am a dynamic person and love to feel what I learn. The thing about this audio book makes it real, the narrators are good that as if they are beside you, although you cant see them but was able to visually describe things for you.

    Will keep this on my phone!

    "Definitely worthwhile"

    When I started listening to this audio-book I was slightly put out, since I haven't studied German in over ten years now. After a short while however, things really started to come together. After about half an hour I actually started to begin building up a decent picture of the stories, first by picking out the key words and then by inferring some that I hadn't heard before. I was actually very impressed, I thought I'd all but lost my initially limited knowledge of the language, but the stories are structured in such away to make them very accessible. I'm not sure how somebody with zero initial understanding of the language would cope, but i'm by no means conversational and this was definitely beneficial to me.

    "German made easy!"

    German isn't an easy language to learn as enunciation and pronunciation go a long way yet this book is indeed a great start for beginners like me! I appreciated the fact that the narrator had a slow and a steady pace, making it easy to catch up. I also appreciated how he asked the listeners to download the PDF for an improved performance.

    "great for learning"


    I have been looking to improve my German skills in an easy and enjoyable way since moving here a few months ago. I have an approximate knowledge of the language already but really only in my professional field. This helped my more conversational language in a variety of different fields. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a laid back approach to really up your word count and language understanding.

    "Great audiobook or beginners"

    Interesting and clear audio which is very easy for the beginners like me to understand German. Since I am new starter I have taken print out of all the chapters which helped me to understand well. Speaker was very slow and I felt comfortable and easy to learn. Chapters are well organized with proper pronunciation. Repeating the words and recap helped a lot in memorizing. When compared with websites and books I felt audio version as the best one.
