Der Sandmann: Berlin 1816
Der Sandmann: Berlin 1816
by E.T.A. Hoffmann
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.69

5.0 out of 5 stars B1 level german only text., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
good but strange story. IMO the 'nutcracker and mouse king' AKA 'nußknacker und mausekönig' is his best tale.
and thanks to librivox free german audio available. short stories are particularly suitable for language learning.
so if you feel bi-lingual books are easy give ETA Hoffmann a try.

Pure Mathematics 1: v. 1

Edition: Paperback
Price: £31.99

5.0 out of 5 stars you need C1 core maths first, not just the GCSE, 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
classic vintage textbook.
for those of you thinking of buying this book i would say you first need to be around AS level, or are comfortable with A level C1 core maths.
or quite simply just attempt chapter 1 and see what you think.

by George F. Simmons
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars can be previewed in full on archive (dot) org, 25 April 2015

this is a very good book. its very short too, only 119 pages. if like me you prefer vintage textbooks its a bargain. as you can imagine PDF textbooks are all over the internet nowadays, but its far better and more convenient to have the printed book in my opinion (as opposed to printing out the entire PDF on loose A4).

Le Livre De Poche - Classiques: La Mare Au Diable (Folio (Gallimard))
by Sand
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: £6.78

5.0 out of 5 stars free audio available in both french and english, 15 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a classic french novel, but to supplement the text, free audio is available in both french and english from Librivox (dot org).
so with the audio this becomes a great resource for language learning.

i hope this was helpful.


Der Schimmelreiter.
Der Schimmelreiter.
by Theodor Storm
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars free audio available in german and english, 15 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Der Schimmelreiter. (Paperback)
an excellent story, quite short too, readable in 2 days. the reason for this review is that Librivox (dot org) has recorded the entire book into german and english for free since the book is in the public domain (first written 1888).
so with the audio this becomes a great resource for language learning.

for other novels in this series type 'Joseph Kiermeier-Debre' into amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good, but sadly out of print, 15 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a very thorough book on geometry, my edition is dated 1977. it contains 336 pages and 268 diagrams (figs). P Abbott was an excellent writer of textbooks, i recommend anything written by him.
this book is perfectly suited to GCSE mathematics and after this book trigonometry makes much more sense.


A-level Study Guide German (Letts Educational A-level Study Guides)
A-level Study Guide German (Letts Educational A-level Study Guides)
by John Davies
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars *near free* classic textbooks for A level (U.K.), 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
amazon never fail to surprise me. the book is practically free, you just need to pay postage. i used the english version in the 1990's as part of my 'A' levels to gain a place at university.
for those not familiar with the english school system, A levels are the exams you need to attend university. you typically only do 3 over 2 years.
in other countries the baccalauréat (france) and the abitur (germany) are the same equivalents.

please note 1: books this cheap tend to be ex-library, but for almost 'free' books that's fine.
please note 2: 'A level' is equivalent to B2 of the CEFR reference.
