Dear German language student,
Mastering German Conversation by Dr. Brians Languages is based on the highly acclaimed language learning program developed by the Foreign Service Institute (FSI) for US government personnel in the 1940s. The training enabled the students to live and work in foreign countries.
The FSI approach is straightforward: You learn how to converse in German by speaking in German. Mastering German Conversation allows the complete beginner to do exactly that.
The FSI-inspired guided imitation drills provide staged conversations. These staged conversations are performed exclusively in German. You hear statements and questions, understand them, and formulate responses in German. In this way you learn to think in German. You are now prepared for live conversations on the streets of Berlin.
Our Mastering German Conversation course is an updated version of the original FSI course. The drills have been completely modernized, rewritten, and rerecorded by a native speaker.
Set 1: unit 1 covers:
Masculine, feminine and neuter genders (der, die, das)
Adjective endings in the nominative case
At the end of this unit, you will be able to accurately apply all of the above grammar rules in real-time conversation. You will also learn useful vocabulary for navigating typical travel encounters associated with airports, train stations, hotels, restaurants, etc.
This program is likely the most intensive and demanding self-teaching program available. If you really want to master German conversation, this course is for you. We encourage you to try an excerpt before you buy it: www.drbrianslanguages.com.
NOTE: this audiobook is included in the Mastering German Conversation Set 1 course. If you already own that, there is no need to purchase this audiobook.
We wish you the best,
The Mastering German Conversation Team
