From the Back Cover

An all-in-one resource to help you read, speak, and learn your first 100 words in German

This beginner's quick and easy guide is specifically designed to help you overcome one of the major obstacles to learning German: the intimidation of foreign words and difficulty in memorizing them. Whether you're learning on your own or in a class, Your First 100 Words in German will help you learn German in the same effective way that children first learn to speak their own language.

Your First 100 Words in German includes:

  • A pronunciation guide that describes the sounds of German
  • Eight topic chapters that group the words by theme: Around the Home * Clothes * Around Town * Countryside * Opposites * Animals * Parts of the Body * Useful Expressions
  • An English definition, pronunciation, and illustration for each of the 100 words
  • Tear-out flash cards to help you recognize the German words and learn their meaning and pronunciation
  • Extensive games and puzzles to test your ability to read, pronounce, and understand the words in each chapter
  • A round-up chapter and answer key so you can review all 100 words

This practical activity book not only gives you a great start to learning German with 100 key words but also provides helpful ways to expand your reading vocabulary.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Patrick Sweeney on January 9, 2003
Format: Paperback
This book is an amazing tool for starting your German Vocabulary. I had gotten a good start using a CD set, as an intro to the grammer and syntax, but after that part is over you need to learn words! There is no way around it. This book introduces common words that we use ourselves to introduce children to our native language. Body parts, things around the house, animals, geographical entities (rivers, forests), and greetings and exclamations.
The book itself is setup like a grade school workbook, with simple matching activities after showing the words. The back also contains rip out flash cards for every word mentioned in the book. A final useful tool is a puncuation guide in the front with valid examples, so if you can't read German yet (I couldn't when I started), you will learn how to read the words used.

Format: Paperback
This is a real fun book with which you can learn basic vocabulary (clothes, animals,countryside, home, parts of the body, around town, useful expressions).

It contains games and puzzles like matching games, find the hidden objects, search a word, label the picture, etc. and tear-out flashcards to memorize the words. In the beginning, it has a pronunciation guide describing the sounds of German and of course it contains the answer key to check your progress.

Vocabulary doesn't need to be a pain anymore with this book! (What a pity that they haven't published something similar for intermediate vocabulary!)

I loved all the fun activities in the book. I've used it for 8-16 year old children whom I tutor and they liked the pages too.
