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)
You can also browse through our Language Learning Shop!
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
