Publisher's Summary

From a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author comes a new kind of textbook....

Do you want to master German? Do you like science fiction? What about dystopian worlds? Are you tired of reading boring textbooks in order to learn German?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, this is a book you should consider. We introduce a one-of-a-kind learning tool that will enhance your comprehension, improve your German vocabulary and grammar, and let you enjoy a dystopian sci-fi novel from a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author in the process.

Note: This book contains some strong language. We felt it was important for the censorship theme of the novel. If such words offend you, you might not enjoy this book. Our other title, Learn German: By Reading Fantasy, is based on a novel that has no strong language.

    Story
    "Interesting way to learn a new language"
    What made the experience of listening to Learn German the most enjoyable?

    It's an interesting learning method. I'm sure it will pick up over the next couple years, as it is innovative and keeps the language-learner interested. Starting it off with swearing adds to the fun, and I feel it will appeal to people studying German in academic institutions. Great book.


    What other book might you compare Learn German to and why?

    I wouldn't compare it to any book in particular, though I have encountered similar textbooks in the past.


    What does Roberto Scarlato and Roland Wolf bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    An interesting platform which helps you learn.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. 14 hours of constant learning and listening to the same chapter twice is too much.

    "Interesting language journey"
    If you could sum up Learn German in three words, what would they be?

    useful, interesting, cool


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the imagination the author has come with. It is not an usual way of learning language book like serious characters in stories etc. An amusing way to learn yourself scouse.I guess the targeting audience are young people.When learning language it is funny that sometimes people learn the bad words first. It holds your attention in a funny way.


    Which character – as performed by Roberto Scarlato and Roland Wolf – was your favorite?

    Phoe was my favorite. When talking to the narrator, she is very explanatory. She is the imaginary friend. But she is a friend indeed and a friend in need, being invisible. She is convinced that she is real. She is thoughtful and carries about the author not to be caught talking to her, like when he moves his lips.She doesn't her friend to be labeled as crazy by society.


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

    Well I like the way the main character makes analysis of himself. The way he makes an anatomy of his inner-life, very honestly. He doesn't make the effort to show himself different than the way he really is.


    Any additional comments?

    Through this tale colored with humor one can easily dive into learning new words in German. It is different from strict Grammar books. The audio booker is interesting and you don't get the feeling sitting in school and learning, but you can learn new words in a rather more easy and funny way. Recommendations.
