Fun to learn with a German-speaking tutor,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: German for Beginners with audio cd (Languages for Beginners S.) (Paperback)My ten year old niece has just begun to learn German at school and since I speak the language (although not without my own mistakes -we all have something to learn) I am giving her private tuition. This is a wonderful book;it is not too demanding of the learner,but not too 'leicht' either. The book is colourful and fun and the accompanying CD is most useful.I read through it initially and was very impressed.My niece and I have used it in our lessons and found it invaluable.It provides a solid basis for someone new to German,but is not frightening or overpowering.As a committed linguist I am a firm believer in making the learning of a foreign language fun and so I unreservedly recommend this book.

Thanks - helpful review! I am all for encouraging children to learn a second language as early as possible - I am looking for something to help my niece who is 11. Unfortunately I can only help from a distance since we live in different countries - but it sounds as if this book and CD is well worth a try! I am really hoping to find a good interactive programme she could use on her laptop but need to do some more research first.
