A fantastic course that catapulted my German,
This review is from: All Talk German 16 Hour (All Talk Complete) (Audio CD)
Being a Michel Thomas and Pimsleur fan i was eager to see what Linguaphone had to offer. They've been in the language course game for about a century and therefore i hoped they would know their stuff...
AND BOY, DO THEY!!
My German language ability has vastly improved. So much so that i don't have translate in my head anymore. I visited Munich after completed this course and people i met were impressed with my German so i guess that means it works! (oh, and i mean i actually held conversations on many topics, not just ordering food.) I ended up speaking to an Austrian man on a train to Sanlzburg for the entire journey. He asked where i studied German and couldn't believe it was with an audio-course. I would actually rate it higher than Michel Thomas German.
I found this course thorough, very easy to follow, entertaining and most of all the lessons were well structured and i retained almost all of what i heard. I found myself looking forward to tomorrows lesson. And the joy of re-visiting another lesson as many times as you need means you can learn at your own pace.
This is well worth the money. I intend to use AllTalk for the other languages too.
