Customer Reviews

Book is easy to read, logically laid out, etc.
Michigoon
It also spends too much time on simple things, and doesn't have enough practice drills for more complex concepts.
Lady VonKountzavitch
This is a great book, I highly recommend this it has audio which is great for you to learn the pronunciation.

I never got along with German at school, but I wanted to pick this language up as an adult. I remain a long way from fluent, but having worked through this book I now have enough German to make myself understood, and even managed to read a couple of short German works. This book does indeed demystify the language.

There are elements of German that do seem convoluted and hard, but at the end of this book I thought "is that all of it"?

Well obviously learning a language goes beyond reading one work, but this is a good one for building confidence and competence in the language. It is well written and easy to follow.

We bought this AND German for Dummies - both similar but with just enough difference to make both helpful. These books are easy reads, contain CDs which helps greatly with pronounciations & accents. It's crazy how similar German & English are. The Germans speak so rapidly (in person) that's it's hard to pick up those similarities but once you learn the key similarities, it's much easier. However, don't get too comfortable with those similarities as there are a few words that are almost the opposite in meaning. German DMYSTiFied actually makes it a fun learning experience. I believe this book would help teens as well.

I have just started using this book, but so far so good. German is difficult for me, but this book is helping me breakdown the language so I can get a better grasp on all the grammar and pronunciations!

I bought the Kindle version of this book not realizing that if I had bought the printed version I would have probably gotten the CD with it.

I have worked through part of chapter 1 with my kids and it does a good job of covering German pronunciation and spelling. I like how the book is organized and the kinds of exercises and quizzes it includes. It seems like the right level for teaching kids, though I wouldn't limit instruction using just this text. I am disappointed that the cd in my original purchase did not work. I got a replacement but it also did not work, so I am unable to judge whether that part of the set is adequate for teaching German. Ultimately, the cd is critical for getting the pronunciation right.

I took two years of German a decade ago, so I bought this hoping to use it as a refresher. I find it poorly organized. It also spends too much time on simple things, and doesn't have enough practice drills for more complex concepts. For example, 5 pages are dedicated to "My name is __. What is your name? What is his name?" But less than two poorly explained pages on using nicht versus kein. I was able to pick and choose exercises that I needed, but definitely needed other books and CDs to supplement. It's also kind of difficult to actually use; it never really lays flat on the table, and always finds a way to slip out of your lap. Because of this, you can't quite write on the pages. I do feel like this book was a waste of money.
