Most Helpful

Yes it works. And how !!

What made the experience of listening to German Phase 1, Unit 11-15 the most enjoyable?

I have drilled using this course for about a year. I am moving to Germany for an 18 mos. volunteer program beginning January 2015. This program has prepared me for that move.

Any additional comments?

Some have noted that the "printed material is not included." Well, it is !! it is on a downloadable PDF. BUT when you get the PDF you may not know you have what you need. If you are on a Mac it is one of those rare PDFs that MUST be opened with Adobe Reader, first. After that you can extract the actual booklet you need and it will open normally with Preview or on portable IOS devices.

Effective

Would you listen to German Phase 1, Unit 11-15 again? Why?

Yes, I plan to order unit 2 and 3. This is a good way to learn conversational German. I would like there to be more explanation as to the way sentences are supposed to be structured. Although there are many opportunities to repeat and answer after the instructor, I'm still unclear about how to form a sentence on my own. I'm only on lesson 11, so maybe it will come later.


Who was your favorite character and why?

I like that conversations are held between a man and s woman so I can easily differentiate between questions and replies.


Any additional comments?

I read several comments about the missing practice reading material. If you go to audible's full site there is a link to download it.
