Sehr gut!

I'm currently taking my second year of German at a university. The information contained in this one-hour audio is very useful. Whether you are totally new to the German language, or have some experience, this is a must have. The music is great, and you can even speed it up on your iPod after you've listened to it at the normal rate.

Another fine tool

Like volume 1, this is a great tool for beginners.

Again, the music is nice and the language tracks are memorable without being too repetitive. Being an intermediate speaker, this CD was a bit more useful for me than volume 1; I look forward to seeing higher level German Earworms available. Thanks again for a great product.

getting better

I have listened to volume 1 in the car probably 20 times, and was feeling confident ordering coffee and drinks. But this volume 2 is even better, the music is better, rhythm is good, and the learning is fun!

Recommended

The best part of this audiobook that helps you actually learn and listen to it with pleasure over and over again is the music and the voice intonation of the people speaking. Quit good!

Does what it is supposed to do!

I used Rapid German Vol 1 and 2 to brush up to meet relatives from Germany, and they worked as they are supposed to. The music helped me concentrate on the lessons. It gave me the basics to use. Vol 2 moves faster than Vol. 1. It continues the lessons from Vol. 1.

Beginner level

Nice methodology but applied only to a beginner level. Would like to see more advanced german done this way...

Good for what it is

it's good for what it is but rather short for the price, especially if you pay with a token thing. lot of information, great choice of words and phrases for most travel and good accent from what I can tell. would rather see a two for one token for the price of subscription. the words set to music is intriguing on principle that music and lyrics help you learn easier than rote memorization

Worth the Wait

I have been looking for this volume for almost two years because I was so impressed with volume 1. Volume 2 is just as impressive and is a painless way of leaning vocabulary, expressions and basic grammar. I hope in due course we see a volume 3.

Good, but uncompetitively priced

Any additional comments?

Good for ingraining certain phrases and words into your memory. However, the rrp and alternative cost of a credit are very uncompetitive against Apple.

Simple Magnificent

Even for non Native English speakers an excellent tool, to learn to speak German. The complementary booklet useful to practice in writing or to take it with you for your practice or quick guide.
