As an intermediate learner of German, I have found the book very useful in that it provides parallel translation as you go (the left page is in German and the right one in English). The translation is superb. The selected stories are finest examples of the contemporary German literature, Let the book carry you away and polish your German at the same time! :o)

This ebook is worthless for Kindle users.

There are many options to make this an useful book for Kindle owners, but the solution from Amazon is the worst possible one.

This little book is a collection of charming short stories. One can either read them or study them closely to enlarge vocabulary and learn to understand grammer. It is also a good exercise in the use of synonyms.

Parallel texts are a good tool for building foreign language skills. This book is the second level with more complex language usage than Level One. That is not to say this book is for beginning language students as I believe it is better suited to the advanced beginner or intermediate learner. German text is on the left with the corresponding English text on the right. The translations are not word for word, rather, the approximate equivalent in English. But they do help the reader "see German in action" so to speak, which is helpful with a grammar-driven language such as Deutsch.

Format: Paperback
Interesting stories, but not very useful for learning German. You'll just read the English version.
