Publisher's Summary

Would you like to try a different way of learning German? Are you tired of the traditional methods teachers tell you to use? What if we told you there is a better, more carefree way of learning German and expanding your vocabulary to unprecedented levels? Well, guess what? There is! One of the best ways to learn German is by using practical conversation guides.

The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to read whatever pops up on the Internet. That's exactly why we created this book.

German phrases + pronunciation guide = faster learning.

We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language if you use pronunciation guides as a shortcut. Pronunciation guides allow you to follow a certain "pronunciation clue" and without realizing it, you will be speaking almost perfect German. This will in time allow you to expand your vocabulary quickly, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the German language. Practical conversation guides work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you follow the different sections we've prepared for you, you will learn German with much less struggle! Your goal is to simply focus on a section at a time. Each chapter takes on multiple topics, including tips on how to build rapport with others, grocery shopping, and asking for directions, just to name a new. We wanted these sections to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening.

guaranteed effective way to learn German language

Well done! This is the new way and I think the most effective way to learn language practically. You will just listen to these samples of conversation and expressions and you'll recall them once you are in that situation. I find it fun too because you dont have to go through the boring step by step process in order for you to learn German. I believe this is much better than that. Though you need a formal training. I recommend this if you want to do shortcut and learn in no time :)

I like the approach of this audiobook! well done!

What made the experience of listening to Practical German for Beginners the most enjoyable?

There are hundreds of samples of phrases and expressions that are commonly used in everyday living! They are separated in categories on situation these expressions are being used. as well as conversation. I like this style because it makes it easy to recall once you are in that situation. Or you may also use it as guide.

What other book might you compare Practical German for Beginners to and why?

I have listened to some German audiobooks but this one I think is the most practical way to learn it also the most effective. kudos to the team behind.

we are using this in class!

What made the experience of listening to Practical German for Beginners the most enjoyable?

What made it enjoyable is probably the feeling u get when you have finally memorize a complete phrase or sentence because you've heard it many times. Same goes with the sample conversations. I like it when I get to remember what to reply during a conversation in a given situation.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Practical German for Beginners?

The expressions sample in here. I love the way the narrator expresses them!

Have you listened to any of Ellen Goldmund’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no.

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

no because I think it is better that you listen to it again and again

Any additional comments?

well done! We use this in our Foreign language class regularly!
