Good book to get you started
am 13. Dezember 2013
I wrote this review in English as most people who are interested in this book are still in the process of learning German.
My wife is American and learning German. She has difficulties with the pronunciation of the "Umlauts" and the "CH" This is where the book shows it's strength, as it has illustrations on how to form certain sounds, the pictures show you where to put you tongue and how to shape your lips.
Apart from that, it is a solid starter guide that will help you with the structure of sentences and getting a solid base vocabulary.
YOU WILL NOT BE FLUENT IN GERMAN BY READING BOOKS ONLY, no matter how good the books are, German is a b**ch (I am a native German, but got a good outside perspective through my wife on how hard it is to learn the language. ), Use this book, take a language course and find friends and/or a group to practice with, that's the only way to be successful. Practice whenever you can and don't be afraid to make mistakes, Germans are grumpy but forgiving.
Best of luck, viel Glueck! :o)
