A great way to improve language proficiency
on 25 June 2012
This is a brilliant idea.
Rather than wading through lists of nouns, phrases etc, this book improves your language by telling an excellent detective story.
I became completely engrossed in the story and forgot I was supposed to be learning. There are phrases and excercises at the end of each chapter but these don't seem like a chore, rather they are a necessary part of finding out what happens next.
Before I knew it, I'd read an excellent detective story and learnt quite a lot of German without much effort. There should be more books like this for different levels and in different languages as this format works so well.
