Hard Copy needed, too fast pace monologue.

I gave up listening after 6th chapter. will drown you in grammer and read you e multiple choice and fill in the blanks questions. Writer shows knowledge bit no intention to really teach. Not worth the time.

Not a stand alone audiobook

The hard copy is required. This may be a good accompaniment but it is not suited for audio book only.

Should not be Audible alone. requires book.

Well read, but requires a visual copy of the book to understand properly. During the introduction this is not apparent, but swiftly becomes so as in enters the first few chapters.

Not Well Formatted for Audio

Badly formatted for an audiobook. Directly references printed material, gives fill-in-the-blank and references highlighted words. Gives long lists of grammatical variations with little explanation. Uses complex example sentences without providing translation. I wanted something I could listen to in the car that would teach basics on a practical level, for travel. The approach in this book is just not suited for listening.

The content is fine, but hard to follow

This doesn't translate well to an audiobook in my opinion. it's really hard for me to follow along and actually learn anything.

Truly A Helpful Book

I usually have a difficult time when trying to learn a foreign language but with this book, I'm learning at a fast past the instructions are easy to understand and I'm already noticing situations where I could talk to people in Germany.

A Good Self-Study Audiobook

This book is great for self-study, explains patterns and rules to make it easier to acquire a working vocabulary. I already knew some German when I got the book but liked it so much.

Pathetic.

Bad recording and hours of listening to a man speaking in English. Do not waste your time and money.

Disappointing

This book took me back to those school days where emphasis was on grammar and not getting you started with some conversational German. This one is hard work, avoid it at all costs!

Polish Your Skills

This is a good language study if you already have the basics of the language down. I would recommend this for people wanting to enhance or refresh their skills.

A solid guide to understanding the language, as much as a native English speaker can. I just wish they put in more exercises to practice.

Lasted about 5 minutes

Not for beginners. Goes through the theory of the language. E.g after the first chapter it has a big paragraph in German and as an exercise about highlighting words containing ch which is pronounced like the h in huge (not great for an audiobook). It at no point gives the translation or teaches you any of the words. Not even after - seems an odd approach.

Paul Noble's book is much more for beginners and works better as an audiobook.

If you already have an intermediate vocabulary it's probably great at teaching you about nouns, Diphthong pronunciation and when to capitalise but it really isn't a beginners book, it's not at all engaging and it just doesn't work as an audiobook.

Really horrible to get started with

There is a chance that this book will improve overtime, but it clearly someone just reading a text book. There is not way to follow what is being said. Perhaps later in my German journey and later in the book, the supposed conversational section, could be more useful.

A confused book

Firstly, the approach to learning German in this book is very academic. It focusses on complex grammar rules before providing you with a vocabulary to use them with. This is fine for someone studying German as an intellectual interest but is a wholly inefficient and dull way to learn conversational German.

Secondly, It starts with some "fill in the blank" exercises without teaching you a single word of German which makes it feel like the book intends for you to just stab around in the dark until you start getting things right. Not a very satisfying or inspirational way to learn.

Finally, the exercises in this book are very much geared towards a reading/writing education, which seems odd for an audiobook where the primary medium is speaking/listening.

In conclusion I think this book is ok as a supplement to a better audiobook, but it is confused about what it wants to be. It's a school textbook forced to be an audiobook and aimed at novice learners with some (all be it minimal) German experience.
