5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Introduction to German 24 April 2010
By ric03 TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second of the BBC's 'Talk' series I've bought (the first being 'Talk Japanese'). I find the series to be remarkably simple, elegant and welcoming to a beginner.

The system is simple to understand, and the packaging and presentation is lovely. A nice, feature packed book is accompanied by 2 CD's in a decent box. Following a brief guide to how the system works, and an overview of pronunciation, the book is divided into 10 chapters which feature progressively complex language (Saying Hello >> Asking for Directions >> Ordering Meals etc.). Though this sounds simplistic, the way the course is structured is ideal -- incorporating plenty of useful language to learn around each of these situations. And, of course, you also get a good grounding for travel to Germany. On top of this, there are plenty of tests and activities, and each chapter works in conjunction with the CD perfectly.

The bottom line is that this is about as good an introduction to a new language as you can get without instruction. It's not advanced, but the system is simple to learn from, very welcoming and user friendly. If you follow this course (should take you 2-3 months if you're diligent) you'll have no problem travelling to Germany, or moving onto more advanced lessons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 16 Feb 2010
By Mandi
Format:Paperback
I am working my way through this book at college, it is detailed and has handy tips to help you grasp the German language.

It is one of the easiest and basic books to use as it shows you how to shop get food & drink to booking a room in a hotel and plenty more. I have had a few German language books in my time and think this one is great!

If you want an easy book to learn with this is it. You can also go onto the BBC website and get working sheets to compliment the book.

Good for total beginners like me. However,I personally like grammar explained and verbs conjugated right from the beginning and this does give such detail.

This book helps you to learn German quickly and in a very communicative way! All four skills i.e. speaking, listening, writing and reading are being well practiced when doing the very interesting excercises. For beginners there is no better way of learning basic German!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy German 18 Nov 2010
By PandJ
Format:Paperback
We purchased the book and CD to back up the German for Beginners course we were taking one evening a week. It gives a helpful, basic introduction to the language for tourists and covers topics such as introductions, ordering food and drink, asking for directions, shopping etc. If you are studying on your own, we would recommend you also look at the BBC website. Either way it is a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple layout and easy to pick up! 26 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
This item was bought for me for Christmas 2012, I learned basic school German as a child and wanted to try and pick it up again. I cannot recommend this system enough, I've been listening to the cd's via my mp3 player and also with the book (try and get a version with the book and cd's it helps) and I am half way through it i.e. cd 1 finished. I listen to the recordings for maybe 1-2 hours per day and I think I could definetely walk into a cafe or bar in a German speaking country and not look like a total fool thanks to this system. Some of the grammer takes a while to get the hang of but that is more a flaw in my ability to learn than a flaw with the system. I haven't used any other format than this bbc version but I feel that if you are a total begginer or doing as myself and taking it up after a 15 year layoff, you won't go far wrong. I'm thinking of getting the next book in the series too as it is so easy to pick up. I think if you are more advanced you should probably avoid this and go for number 2 straight away or maybe seek out a class at your local college. Hope this review helps, happy learning.
