Manages to Actually Demystify German
on June 29, 2012
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.
