5.0 out of 5 stars YES!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine for a Beginner
I bought this along with 5 other Teach Yourself German books, but for me this was the least useful of the lot. Although it has 16 chapters with lots of vocabulary around the themed topic, I wondered when reading it what I was getting that I couldn't get from a dictionary.

This review is from: Essential German Vocabulary: Teach Yourself (Paperback)
You can test yourself thruout the book but it is intended for in-depth study - also full of detail for visiting German-speaking areas of the world - better than a phrasebook
