Some Useful Learning Materials

German Made Simple: Learn to speak and understand German quickly and easily

This book provides an excellent introduction to the German language with plenty of vocabulary and grammar exercises to help you advance in your German studies. Unfortunately, there are no audio CDs to accompany this book, which can make pronunciation practice rather hard. Mind you, since it's much cheaper than most other German textbooks on the market (and trust me - it's textbook sized at 320 pages), it's still a great buy - even without the audio.

GERMAN in 10 minutes a day® with CD-ROM

This book is great for people wanting to learn some basic German vocabulary. It's a workbook that uses different methods to teach a variety of subjects including household objects, numbers, colors, family, food, money, days, months, and seasons. The book contains many learning activities like crosswords, matching, and fill in the blanks to reinforce the vocabulary that you've learned and is also complete with stickers, flashcards, a pull-out menu, and CD-ROM. This book does not, however, cover grammar. Also, keep in mind if you've previously studied German, you may find most of this book very easy, but that's what makes it great for beginner learners.

Quick and Simple German (Audio CD)

When you are learning to speak German, pronunciation is key. For this, it is very important to hear spoken German so that you can become familiar with the sounds of the language. In true Pimsleur fashion, this audio set excels in this capacity. Unfortunately, Pimsleur products often come with a hefty price tag. Not so for Quick and Simple German. Because it is a condensed 8-lesson version of their larger CD set, it is priced much cheaper. If you are ready to make the next step in your German learning however, you might want to consider upgrading to the complete Pimsleur German Audio Set.
