Great for brushing up

I studied German in High School and again in College, but over the years my knowledge of German drifted away. With this program I've been able to remember the old stuff and pick up a lot of new vocabulary.

Not so helpful for a beginner

I am currently a voice major in a university and I bought this in hopes that I could better my German since I have to study songs in other languages. I took 1 year of German in 5th grade (9 years ago so I don't remember a whole lot) and I've sung some German songs. But I don't have a very wide vocabulary in German from that.

Thus, when I listened to this audiobook in the car, I didn't learn much. I am the kind of person who needs to see a word or know how it's spelled (so I can at least picture it in my head) if I'm going to learn it. In this audiobook a man just says a word in English and then a woman says the word in German twice (there's a little bit of time in between so that you can repeat it aloud yourself). However, that's not enough for me. I think it would be more ideal if they would spell the German word out first or something like that for the visual people like me. Also, even if I did just try to repeat after the woman on the audiobook, I wasn't sure if I was saying it right or not. I think that perhaps the best place to learn a language is in a classroom. That way you can see and hear the language, as well as be counseled on your pronunciation.

Perhaps if a person was pretty fluent in German or studied it a while ago and just needs to brush up on it, this audiobook would be helpful. But again, if someone doesn't have a pretty extensive background in German, I don't think this audiobook will be too helpful.
