While my oral comprehension of spoken German going from German to English after all of these years is still relatively quite decent after all of these years. However, these days, due to lack of an opportunity to speak German, I’ve got problems trying to formulate what I’d like to say in German. The reason I’m mentioning this is that my dear OH and I plan to travel to Germany got pre-empted due to family matters. Now due to the COVID-19 virus, our plan has once again due foiled.
When traveling abroad to any European country, its citizens appreciate it when tourists try to communicate in the country’s language. The best thing about this particular book is its continued use of the phonetic pronunciation of each phrase throughout its pages. The phonetic pronunciation gives the book’s English readers the correct way to speak German in a manner they’ll be able to understand.
For wanting to enrich its reader’s ability to speak German as if they’re a native, by providing them with the most useful phrased they might encounter or want to speak, I’ve given the book’s publisher 5 STARS for its endeavor.
After their success teaching Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese, Dutch, Russian and now they enhance their previous teaching of German! And it works. Not only are the phrases presented useful, but also the additional experience of correct pronunciation of the German language, umlauts, diphthongs and all, is indispensible to learning proper communication – verbiage and how to use the words correctly. A very impressive guide is provided on how to pronounce vowels and consonants (as well as their combinations) in the German tongue, along with a phonetics pronunciation guide of each and every word in the phrases, included after every translation. Taking it slowly, step by step with practice, German phrases become accessible!
The technique is solid and the lessons well taught. This is a very fine introduction to German language that may arise when you visit German-speaking countries, appropriate for all age levels. Take the journey into a new language! Grady Harp, May 20
Each word/phrase is first given in English, below that in German, and below that again an attempt to write a phonic version of the word/phrase, based on the English pronunciation. As long as you are familiar with English phonetic rules, it kind of works - in not - ignore the last line and figure out the pronunciation on your own.
Personally I am not keen on this kind of approach to learn a language, but I understand the need, that when you travel or have newly arrived in a country you have no language knowledge of, to have a quick guide at your finger tips....
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Lingo Mastery is helping to pave the way for easily digestible and graded readers to assist people to acquire a foreign language. Reading is one of my very favorite ways to soak up a language! However, you typically need to know several hundred words over 1,000 before reading can be enjoyable beyond stuff written for children. Lingo Mastery bridges this gap onto more interesting content.
Weiter so mit der großen Arbeit!
