Publisher's Summary

German is the official language of Germany and Austria and is one of the official languages of Switzerland, Belgium, Lichtenstein, and Luxembourg. Nearly 100 million people speak German as their first language: about 77 million in Germany, eight million in Austria, and 4.5 million in Switzerland.

German Level 4 is a new 30-unit course designed to be completed after German Level 3 (replaces German Level 4 10-unit course). Thirty 30-minute lessons totaling 15 hours of spoken German language learning plus one hour of listening lessons designed to expand your vocabulary give you practice hearing German and bring you one step closer to reading German for pleasure.

A user's guide is provided as an audio. Builds upon skills taught in Pimsleur's German phases one through three. You'll be speaking and understanding German with near-fluency and with a broad range of conversational skills. In phase four, the pace and conversation moves more rapidly, accelerating exposure to new vocabulary and structures and approaching native speed and comprehension. You'll learn to speak about your professional and personal lives, needs, likes, and dislikes and create complex sentences discussing the past, present, future, conditional, and subjunctive.

Topics include:

  • Business: attending trade fairs; meeting with colleagues; discussing professions, products, and customers' concerns; making or asking for suggestions.
  • Personal: discussing where and when you met someone, divorce, German heritage; using the informal form to address several people; talking about family members, including distant cousins and in-laws; losing a personal item; talking about getting a driver's license; having a broken item repaired.

Critic Reviews

"Pimsleur programs provide plenty of positive reinforcement that will keep learners on track, and we found that Pimsleur gave us more proficiency and confidence in speaking the new language than any of the other language programs we reviewed." ( AudioFile magazine)

Too basic for intermediary students

It is advertised as intermediary, but in fact remains at beginner level. The company is encouraged to revise their information to the public.

Great contene but incompete.

Would you listen to German Level 4 again? Why?

ibly - for review

Any additional comments?

Yes - the written portion of this unit is missing. This is quite annoying as these are fairly expensive items.

Pimsleur German will get you where you need to be

I have been doing Pimsleur German for about 8 hours a week for the past year. I’m just about done with the fourth course. I just moved to Germany. Everyone is impressed with my German. I have no trouble getting people to talk with me and can hold my own in a conversation Entirely in German for a whole hour or more. It’s thrilling. No one believes I learned almost entirely through an audiobook.

I did make sure to master every single lesson. That meant going through the lesson once, then repeating it in five minute chunks over and over until they felt natural. I also did it almost five days a week for at least an hour a day. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it. I am already testing at the B1 level. Can’t wait to start Pimsleur German 5!
