Excellent course combining book and recordings,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Colloquial German (Colloquial) (pack) (Audio CD)
Like many people I have bought several different language courses and for me the Colloquial series from Routledge is the best. It depends on how you prefer to learn a new language. I much prefer to be able to see words and sentences as well as hear them, and the Colloquial series is a book-based course, backed up with excellent, clear recordings. Grammar and sentence structure is taught and there are numerous, varied exercises with writing, reading, listening and speaking. For me this format is perfect. The alternative is the audio-only system where you only listen and speak, but I find I learn much better with the combined approach of book and recording.
