Editorial Reviews


"Genowrin is a German learning book that travelled back in time, drank a tankard of mead and immersed itself in a different world." -

From the Author

In my experience as a language teacher, what students often need is not more grammar exercises but practice. Many learners don't always have the opportunity to practice with native speakers and watching television series in German can be tricky, because they're often very fast-paced.
Let Go and Learn Effortlessly
Therefore, I have been specializing on creating stories for German learners - stories, which are not just thinly veiled pedagogic pedantries but can actually be enjoyed for what they are.
I believe that when a learner reads a story that he enjoys, the narrative takes precedence over the part of the brain which wants to "figure things out" and it's in that moment that effortless learning can take place.
Interactive Stories Set In a Medieval Fantasy Kingdom
Genowrin was born out of this necessity to provide learners with more authentic materials that are both accessible and enjoyable. After creating a number of detective stories, I wanted to try something new. This book is not only a story set in a fantasy world of medieval kingdoms, magic and sword fights, it's also my first attempt to bring more interactivity to the reading experience. Instead of being told what happens next, you can choose yourself!
Genowrin is the first part of the Aschkalon trilogy, it prepares the story-line, sets the tone and introduces the reader to the gameplay "mechanics".
This book is not for everyone, but if you're studying German on your own and are tired of yet another grammar worksheet, I invite you to step into the world of Genowrin and solve the mysteries of its kingdom!

4.0 out of 5 stars Creative and fun July 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story and illustrations are creative and fun......I find I can follow the story and expand my vocabulary. Not a substitute for a language class, but very good for someone like myself who has some working German and needs to practice reading in German.

I like the ways you can customize the story by choosing different paths...that is fun.

What a fun and interactive way to practice a new language. Klein has really built on his tort books to provide readers with even more fun here. Plus it's a fantasy setting, so double win. Loved it and can't wait for the sequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good way to learn to read German October 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am about halfway thru the text and the story is fun to read on a kindle. It kept me entertained while waiting for my car to be serviced, waiting to have my teeth cleaned and a few other mundane wait sessions. Its a good way to stay engaged in learning a language.
