4.0 out of 5 stars Interessant und hilfreich!
An interesting story, told in a level of German that isn't too basic or simplistic, but doesn't require complete literacy in the language. The stated level of "intermediate to advanced" is pretty accurate. I'll be looking for more, perhaps slightly more advanced works!

3.0 out of 5 stars Das Spielers Tod
Think it would be very helpful if the article were given before each noun in the vocabulary at the end of each chapter. When learning German vocabulary one is told to learn the correct article with each noun because in some cases a change of article means something different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 17 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Learning German through Storytelling: Des Spielers Tod - a detective story for German language learners (includes exercises) for intermediate and advanced (Kindle Edition)
This is a great series for intermediate to advanced learners. To be honest, you could read it with less German knowledge, but you'd probably need a dictionary on hand. It is great including day to day German phrases (the things that you struggle to hear if you don't go to Germany and hear German speakers or watch any German TV) and has a short list if German translations at the end of each chapter. I read the kindle version and the only thing I find a little difficult is having to scroll to the end of the chapter to look up the phrases (if I was reading a paperback, I'd just keep my finger in the page, but you can't do that on a kindle (yet). That's just the way that they are published on the kindle at the moment though, which is a literal e-version of the book and I would think that Kindle will eventually improve this. You can get a German kindle dictionary, but they don't tend to translate the idioms and common phrases that this book is so good at including.

The stories are quite short which I like as it gives a feeling of achieving progress as you can get through each book quite quickly. They are reasonably funny too, but aren't likely to win too many literary awards.

A fantastic way to expand your German language skills though.

I have all three of this series, and they're all worthwhile. They have improved my colloquial German and they're fun to read too.

This review is from: Learning German through Storytelling: Des Spielers Tod - a detective story for German language learners (includes exercises) for intermediate and advanced (Kindle Edition)
Combined with setting up a German dictionary on my kindle, so I can highlight any word and it will tell me the meaning, it has made my studying so much easier! Brilliant

4.0 out of 5 stars another detective story, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice book to learn German and I would recommend it but there is a problem with its press and it should be noted that 'die Dritte Hand' is written above all the pages and the answer key possibly belongs to the 'Die Dritte Hand' book. I don't have Die Dritte Hand, may be it has the answer key of 'Des Spielers Tod'.
