Great !!

I really loved learning German from Central Park. It's a jump-start, no-nonsense way to learn German. Rather than bogging down in verb conjugation like many formal language classes, Central Park starts with the basics. "Ich, Ich kann, Ich kann beginnen." You learn how to say basic things about yourself, order food and drink, get a hotel room, and find directions. Central Park also does a great job of comparing English words with German words, and explaining how German grammar is more similar to King James English grammar than modern English grammar. I have two complaints about this book though: First, you never learn spelling. Speaking German one thing, but as soon as you start to read it, you realize you have mostly no idea to spell anything you just learned. Second, I had a very hard time catching the differences between many similar-sounding words. Central Park and the German lady both used dynamic microphones, so they didn't get the crystal-clear dictation from a condenser microphone, which is critical to people learning a new language. That also added to my spelling frustrations. It was hard to parse when to use den mann vs dem mann, because they sounded exactly the same through the recording. Also trying to learn "excuse me" was a mess - I left thinking "enshoilitten zie? emshoiligen zie?" when the correct word is "entschuldigen sie." I also didn't get a great lesson from the numbers and alphabet, but I've since learned them from children's YouTube videos. EDIT: This book now comes with an accompanying PDF to teach you how to spell. Great!

Easy to learn. Love this program.

I thought this book was so easy to follow. My only complaint is that the pauses weren't long enough. I had to slow the speed way down so I didn't have to pause it ever few seconds. Even that didn't help sometimes. What I love most about this book is the way the author explains the connection among German, English, and French. Breaking down the origin of the words and the sound shifts not only made the course super interesting, but it also made the lessons easier to remember. The author intentionally avoids grammatical terms, but as an English teacher, I loved his logical explanations of word function and syntax so much that I will borrow some of his methods in my own language instruction. By asking the listener questions, the author gives the learner a chance to think something through in a way that solidifies the new concepts. The native speaker helped me to correct some of my mispronunciations of the simple phrases and words that I had already picked up. But with that said, I think this course is also perfect for someone with absolutely no German language acquisition.

Easy to learn. Love this program.

I enjoyed the course. I would have liked a visual part, but this is audible. I thought this book was so easy to follow. My only complaint is that the pauses weren't long enough. I had to slow the speed way down so I didn't have to pause it ever few seconds. Even that didn't help sometimes. During the review at the end, I did have to pause it after he said the English every time because there were no pauses for me to say it in German. Overall, I enjoyed it and I will be getting the second book.

The pdf file is full of mistakes

I have only listened and read the first 2 stories so far but I am shocked by the number of mistakes in the accompanying pdf file. Now I cannot trust the contents at all which is truly sad. I will give just 2 examples: Schinken means ham, not jam. And Kunst means art, not science.

A very good concept but someone should have error checked the end product.

The most essential tool for learning.

While I have completed a good 30 or so hours of Central Park Language Learning and am deep in the level two area, I still haven't the foggiest on grammar or how to string a series of words together to form a sentence. While it is true I can point at a picture of a green apple and tell you what it is in German, I wasn't able to say, can I have a green apple and so on. Sure I had a step up going into this as a knew a great deal of words I still had no idea how they worked. Central Park Language Learning uses a simple approach that I practice while I run and walk around in my day and for the first time, I can actually speak German. Can I move there today and fit right in. No, but can I say simple sentences that I couldn't before. Yes. Have I been able to form sentences when I wanted to answer someone. Yes. So, overall, to me, there is not a better learning solution than this.

Great, easy to follow course.

It was a really easy to follow course. Gives a good introduction with minimal effort to remember. You don't really get a big vocabulary but more of a sense of how to use the language, the order of the words and such. I enjoyed the stories albeit my daughter was making up her own stories to match the. Thanks.

It explains easy to understand

An easy to follow guidebook if you want to learn the basics of German language. It's explain in step by step approach. I found some useful tips in this guide that can help you to learn it in a less time. But, I'd like to recommend for the beginners

Such an insightful book!

It is adding to my German skills I already had and is so easy to follow. I would like a more advanced course to follow on. I am going through many mental issues and learning languages was one of the things recommended to me when I go to bed at night.

I actually remember everything

The method of this course is excellent! The pace initially seemed too slow, but that proved itself extremely effective. Instead of cramming as much content as possible, the course makes sure everything it teaches sticks in your mind and each and every German word in a sentence is explained, nothing is expected to be taken for granted. It is evident Central Park takes the time and effort to identify where listeners would need more help, and patiently takes the time to drive home the finer points of German. Looking forward to buy the next course when it's available on Audible.

Lost opportunity

Why on EARTH would you have such a long vocabulary list without adding the gender? Anyone knows who teaches German that it is really best (especially for native English speakers who may not have a strong grasp of the very idea of gendered nouns or even realise this at all) to learn a noun with its associated gender "der" "die" or "das". Terrible omission.

Although I wasn't able to understand every single

Although I wasn't able to understand every single word, I was stunned at how much I actually did pick up on. I credit the narrator for taking a seemingly boring educational task and making it fun!

Well done..!!

The outer space stories were the most exciting for me. It was like I was a little again while learning without a care in the world. Some good life lessons mixed in with some German comprehension.

Otherwise quite helpful!

Useful vocabulary, although at times the German narrator spoke comparatively fast for beginners. Otherwise quite helpful!
