Editorial Reviews

Review


"Prof. Durrell's approach to teaching German as a Foreign Language takes into account how German is actually used in a variety of contexts and registers. His use of 'real' examples to illustrate the language is innovative and much to be applauded."

I got this book after hesitating to do so because some reviews said it is only for advanced students.
Actually this can be really useful even to beginners.
It is very systematic and treats every aspect of the language in detail and in a very clear and definite manner.
I was really helped a lot when I read the gender section right at the beginning. It greatly helped me in removing a big hurdle with German. Every section and even para is a gem. The main thing is that it gives you the pattern and not simply an isolated piece of fact about German. For example, it says in general verbal nouns ending -t are feminine in gender and otherwise they are masculine. This has made a big difference. Even my native German tutors have not provided such a insight.
Buy this as soon you know this.
Everytime I read a page of this book I come out significantly informed and confident and eager to learn more.

I wish they had eBook of this to read on the go instead of having to carry the rather heavy book. But it is a pleasure to have it around oneself.

I have had a few German classes, and I think that this book is an excellent alternative to keeping old textbooks, which can often be difficult to find grammar information in, quickly, on my desk. The references are easy to use and look up, and the explanations are clear. I would definitely recommend this book to any student of German or anyone who is attempting to read or teach themselves German, seeking a grammar reference.

Very comprehensive. Great resource for the serious student of German and anyone doing translation work. Probably too detailed for the casual learner or tourist.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read it between 45 minutes and 1 hour everyday, and I learn something from this book that I didn't know previously almost everyday! I came close to giving it 5 stars, but the book is too extensive and thorough if you can believe that. In other words, it is impossible to learn the hundreds of grammatical rules and colloquialisms and modern-day usages that are contained in this book, even if you ARE a native speaker! My only quarrel with the book is that it sometimes gives examples by using German sentences but then does not translate the sentence into English, which defeats the purpose of providing the example as one cannot learn from the example if he doesn't know the meaning of the sentence.

I just got this book through the mail today (shipping wasn't so great; the book was a little bent) and I immediately opened it to skim through it a little. Just in the 5 minutes I've been reading I've gotten a better understanding on genders with nouns. I am a German 3 (soon to be German 4) student and this isn't information I've learned yet. I've learned that certain nouns have certain genders and that's about it. Now I get a general idea of what noun is tied to what gender. I've also looked over the the sentence structure and other sections. It definitely does a good job explaining. Although it gives a great understanding, a LOT of studying is involved (the material can be a bit tricky). I'm hoping to become somewhat fluent by the end of this book, which may take me a year or so. If you're in the process of learning German, definitely pick this book up! It will help you immensely.

This compendium of German grammar is highly comprehensive, yet most subjects are covered in small, digestible sentences and paragraphs that not only highlight the most pertinent points but are most of the time accompanied with examples. It is a wonderful approach to an often-dry and technical subject. German is notoriously difficult for native English speakers to learn, but getting a grasp on the underlying grammatical devices - and their exceptions - makes the language much more accessible and usable.

I have already written a review on the fourth edition of Hammer's German Grammar and Usage and have recently purchased the fifth edition for Kindle - I wouldn't have bothered if I didn't consider the previous version indispensible for my needs. Hopefully, you will too.

Viel Glück!
