This is great for just a quick introduction to the language and if you want to pick up common phrases/sentences. The draw backs are it's not very in depth and the pace is slow (but for good reason; it's to give the listener plenty of time to repeat) and the speakers are very monotone, which can make it seem boring and like it's taking even longer. A way to cope with it is that I sometimes read through the section of the book I'm going to listen to and then listen to the CD later while I do other things, such as exercise, cook, housework, etc. Anyone who is looking for an in depth book that breaks it down piece by peice and explains the nitty gritty of it, this is not for you. However, if you're looking for something quick that will help you pick up common phrases quickly, this is a good choice.

I have recently come back in contact with a long time friend from Germany and he speaks fluent German but, I lost the ability once i moved away back to the USA. This guide is allowing me to pick back up on phrases and have conversations with him. My goal is to become fluent just as he is by 2014 if not sooner.!

I like this product, you actually get to see the words and then hear them. I So hope this dummy can learn this to hold up my end of a conversation. Learning to write the words are helpful when you have people write to you. The CD arrived in very good condition.

This is an ok product, but its not really for beginners. There is no pronouciation guide, and its just listen and repeat, but sometimes you cant understand the person speaking. It would be good for a brush up course, but theres too much info you dont need for simple conversation.

So far it is easy to follow and I feel I am actually learning some German. Every phrase is repeated twice and they give you plenty of time to recite the words back.

Bought it for our grandson who is taking German in high school. He enjoys it and is learning too. Thank you for a great product.

I was somewhat under pleased with it. Book may be useful if a knowledge of German language is already known.

This seems to be aimed more at someone working there or going for business than for a traveler on vacation. I would prefer a product that just focused on what I need as a tourist. I don't need to ask someone "where is the meeting?" for exampled. It is also not an easy language with the single or plural and the feminine or masculine so I will write down certain ones I want to learn, expand on that, and then listen to the CDs in my car to pick up the pronunciations etc. better.

I have been trying a couple of different things on my quest to learn the german language. One of the major downfalls with this CD is that is does not show you the german alphabet. It you had to spell somthing to someone then you would not be able to survive off f the learning device. I really like that I can listen to the CD as I am doing other things such as cleaning my room, or getting ready for bed, but the CD is often slow and kind of boring. I would not just sit down and read to book, but I carry it with me in case I find my self waiting for something to continue my studies. One of the reasons I like the Audio set is because the book that accompanies the CD shows how to conjugate some different verbs, which is essential when trying to learn any language. This also shows you some irregular verbs, which is a huge plus. Another downfall is that you do not get to hear differnt german dialects.
