Not crazy about it

Too much unimportant talking for me. I just want to get to the German lesson.

Pretty good, as these things go...

I purchased this in advance of a trip to Germany. I am a real "dunce" when it comes to picking up other languages, but have been able to get the basics I might need for my trip from listening to the first 20 or so lessons on this book. It has short lessons with what are really "survival phrases" for a tourist - much better than another one I bought that wanted to teach me how to count to 1000 (at which point I quit listening). I really liked Narrator Judith Meyer - she speaks clearly and it is easy to understand how she is pronouncing words. But, when the Narrator switched about 2/3rds of the way through to Widar Wendt, I did not like this book and quit listening. Mr. Wendt speaks too fast and it is hard to understand his explanation of how to pronounce words as a result. If you are planning a vacation to Germany and just need some very basic phrases (please, thank you, where is the bathroom, excuse me, do you speak english, I don't understand etc.), then I would recommend this book.
