Instructionally pretty solid

As someone who teaches graduate students how to create well-designed instructional materials, and who has had to learn 2 foreign languages over 20 years (no, high school French and Spanish don't count) I always approach language "tapes" with a bit of trepidation. However, I found this audio lesson reasonably well constructed. For the most part, I found the music engaging and it helped maintain my interest in the lessons. The only drawback I experienced was that on 3 or 4 occasions, the music made it difficult for my ear to pick out the exact consonants used in a few words. A quick flip to my old German texts resolved the issue but some may not have that option. In any case, I believe this is a worthwhile introduction (or review) but having a reference nearby would be handy.

Wow, I am impressed!

I have just gotten back from Germany and I have to testify - this program was a Godsend! I could talk to everyone and they not only understood me, they remarked that my German was very good! I was blown away not only by how easily and effortlessly the recorded phrases came back to me, but how I was able to integrate the phrases with the limited vocabulary and grammar that I already possessed. I have tried MANY language programs in the past and never have I found one this effective - AND it's enjoyable to use, too. I believe this program mimics certain aspects of how we naturally learn our mother tongues - by hearing others repeat the same words and phrases over and over, then by repeating them ourselves. I can't wait for volume 2 and strongly recommend this program to anyone wondering which one to purchase.

Relax and forget that your're learning!

I never did German at school, but I intend to live out there eventually, so needed to learn the language from scratch. I feel so fortunate to have found this, as it does everything it promises to do. It has really tuned my ear in to the language, and by playing it in the background as I do household chores or whilst driving, with vrtually no effort, I have begun to understand and say some very useful sentences and phrases. My German speaking friends have commented that my pronunciation is very authentic, too. A real find! I can't wait for Volume 2.

Great way to learn!

I started learning German with this audiobook and after just a few days I've picked up enough of the language to have a passable chat with friends. Great for learning on the commute to work - just put it on and listen. My only criticism is of Amazon/Audible - the DRM means that I can't put this onto my phone to listen :(
