Format: Audio CD
I have found that my reading and written German are on power with most ex pats but my spoken German lets me down through lack of confidence. It is very easy to pronounce a word incorrectly in German and end up offending someone. Normally they will laugh it off as a mistake but one day it was going to back fire.

This book will give you the basics and allows you hear how the words should sound and then gives you the break to repeat the word or phrase. Good for any novice to the language

just to get about moving around and surving in a German speaking country, its pretty good.

The CD def. helps and the text reference and translation to English is quite good for any one to start speaking some basics.

Yeah as I am going to be working in a German speaking nation soonish , I wanted to brush up on German with less expense compared to taking classes and rosetta stone software . This is great as it has a great book with translations and has the audio which has the German words with English translation .Fantastic .Next buy will be Spanish and Arabic and Chinese. I will get the next level up for German .

I bought this as a gift for my fiancee. I am from Germany and he would like to learn some basics.
When we first listed to the CD I thought it is not suitable for beginners. Far too difficult, sentence are too long and too fast...
I guess it would be fine for someone who would like to refresh his german skills.

Have to say not impressed, it is ok if you just want to learn some very basic stuff, after 30 minutes of listening to the cd was enough to drive me mad, it was not consistent or logical, there is better methods of learning the language,

Don't expect to be speaking fluent German after buying this item, but it gives you the basics to get by.
