fun and aimed at adults
on 11 June 2009
I agree with some of the comments made already, but I just wanted to add a few of my own.
- There are very few Business German coursebooks around, and while it is 13 years old, I have not found a better one for adults learning German from scratch in a business context. (I'm happy to be corrected if anyone knows of one!)
- When my teenage daughter was off school with a bug, she watched the whole series avidly in one day & was totally gripped by Nico's story. So it strikes me that if a teenager finds it appealing and accessible, that's a big plus point - and it goes for adults too. Any drawbacks regarding grammar and vocab can be accommodated by the teacher, if you are using it as part of a taught course, though I can see that if you were trying to learn it on your own you might find it hard to follow.
