    This book has some issues. First of all, it's quite outdated. I don't know if they've come out with a newer version (mine is from 2000), but a lot of the cultural things that the book describes have changed now. The other problem is that there are a lot of typos. Being someone who had studied German a fair bit before reading the book, I didn't have a problem deciphering the typos, but beginners might get confused. Again, this may have been fixed in a newer edition, I don't know. On the other hand This book has some issues. First of all, it's quite outdated.

And the grammatical tables in the book are some of the most succinct and well displayed I've seen. It does focus on phrases that are mainly applicable to tourists, but it could still be helpful to anyone learning German.

    It's really for dummies! The pronunciation in the English letters are hardly useful, and they're misleading sometimes. I thought liked the last pages with some German phrases one could use to sound like a German.

    Good review of the German language No one seriously expects to learn a foreign language just from reading a book, but if you’ve had formal training in German and need a quick refresher for, say, a business trip, this book is a good resource. It not only provides the memory jogging you seek but also gives a taste of colloquial German that a college course might omit.

It not only provides the memory jogging you seek but also gives a taste of colloquial German that a college course might omit. The book has reminders about German’s many “false friends”—words that are spelled the same in German and English but have much different meanings (e.g., also, fast, Gift, Kind), and it includes practical information, such as how to get medical help or the fact that museums typically are closed on Mondays.

    Although I am not, and will never be a fan of the title that is given for these introductory series, I do have to recognize that the authors did a good job of introducing the German language to a completely unfamiliar reader. Similarly, they do a very good job at attempting to use dialogue as a form of study while at the same time falling into the pitfall of many language book: making a reader overly dependent on stock phrases which they do not understand, increasing the probability that they wi Although I am not, and will never be a fan of the title that is given for these introductory series, I do have to recognize that the authors did a good job of introducing the German language to a completely unfamiliar reader.

    A nice review, but hardly useful for beginners. It assumes too much about one's previous experiences with the German language (all throughout I kept thinking "THIS is for dummies?"), it focuses too little on grammar, and it assumes that speaking German is more important than reading or writing or understanding it. Pass this up in favor of "German In Review" by Sparks.

    For someone who knows German, this was pretty good. I disagree that it can be aimed at complete beginners though, I felt it ought to be aimed at those with even a very basic grasp of the language. The phonics were a bit silly sometimes.

    Solo puedo decir "por fin lo he acabado!". Se me ha hecho muy pesado por la forma en la que está escrito. Está lleno de chistes tontos y comentarios sin gracia. La parte de enseñar alemán no está mal del todo pero no aporta mucho. Además, el contenido está muy desactualizado.

    This is a book that will be suitable for any native English speakers learning German. A simple yet complete book on how to learn German effectively.
