    no definite articles.

    Learning nouns in German seems almost pointless without the accompanying genders. It is a must!

    The Narrator's voice is absolutely awful

    Dreary, almost whining. Sounds muffled at times. Just couldn't take even 20 minutes of it..

    Not sure what they were thinking

    Would you try another book from Innovative Language Learning and/or uncredited?

    The native speaker sounded like she's been hit with moose tranquilizer. It doesn't need to be dialed up to "radio announcer", but higher than "coroner doing an inquest" is a bare minimum.

    What was most disappointing about Innovative Language Learning’s story?

    There really was not a story involved so this does not seem to apply here. Not applicable.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of uncredited?

    Anyone with a pulse of greater than fifty beats per minute would fill this role well enough.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The price was right.

    I will take anything that is free in this world.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Innovative Language Learning? Why or why not?

    Yes . they are good books.

    Was Learn German: Word Power 101 worth the listening time?

    No Artikel given for nouns

    My biggest problem with learning German vocabulary is knowing what the gender is. There are no articles given with any of the nouns in this lesson.

    Great for getting used to hearing the language

    Great for getting used to hearing the language. If you are already familiar with some very basic (ages 0-4) vocabulary it is more helpful.

    Basic German

    A great course for false beginners of German. The good thing is that you can listen as often as you like repeat and learn sentences, bot just vocabulary. I'll be listening a few more times.

    Actually gives the wrong definitions of hot/cold.<br />

    After it said the word for hot meant cold early on, it lost all credibility and I was done.

    Free Garbage

    Amateurish, incorrect and zero cultural understanding. Some of the words should never be used like in the examples. For example, you don't use informal language when asking a stranger for their name.

    Great but not for absolute beginners

    I think overall I've found this a useful revision tool for the actual lessons I've had in an actual real life. It's not for 'absolute' beginners and definitely covers quite a bit of the ground across the beginners level (tenses / sentence structure / gender etc). Some familiarity is required for maximum usefulness. The audiobook clearly gives you key words which you can repeat. Great. But some example sentences can be quite difficult to understand. I can't see how you could just like that by osmosis internalise full sentences and ultimately a whole language. I don't think as a 'system' it would work on its own. But hey, what do I know. I'm just a linguist learning another Fremdsprache. I'll say this is used best as a revision tool.

    I did find it very helpful.

    certainly helpful for someone who likes to practice the understanding of general basics of the language...I did find it at times not having the right pace for my personal need.
    again in general I would reccomend it to anyone seeking a quick way of learning basics in a quick way.

    Reliable?

    I found this pretty useful. I am sure that "acht" means 8 not 6 though?!

    Depressing

    The contributors sound depressed to the point of suicide throughout making it difficult to listen to.

    Worth it for free

    Pretty useful to cement a few words if you are already learning. Probably not hugely helpful if you are a complete beginner. As a free book it was worth listening to and I will listen to it again to better embed the vocab in my memory.

    Fast paced learning

    I enjoyed it and feel like I learnt a lot in a short time frame. It's certainly the fastest paced language audio book I've come across so far.

    Good for first-time exposure to German

    Useful basic vocabulary, although at times the German narrator spoke comparatively fast for beginners. Otherwise quite helpful!

    Awful

    Thank goodness it was free, well maybe this is why it is free as you couldn’t ask anyone to put down money for this rubbish.
