For the last 9 months I have been learning German using everything I can find on Audible to help me, as well as grammar books and the BBC web courses. By trial and error, I found the following progression of Audible's German titles worked best for me: Earworms German, Pimsleur's German, The series - Learn in your Car German and the series - The Idiot's Guide to German. However, I bought this audiobook (All Audio German) too early and sadly found it moved forward too quickly without enough practice and consolidation of new phrases. Now that I have completed the other audio courses and therefore much improved my German speaking and understanding, I have returned to this audiobook and am finding it much more useful.

I have just started to learn German and I have found that this book flies through the work at a fast steady pace. It is easy to listen to and has good clear examples of German language by the narrators, but it fails to completely bowl me over as I am left somewhat confused due the the lack of explaination of some words. I have not listened to the whole book yet and I feel a bit swamped already. I presume the object seems to be for the listener/learner to be encouraged to figure out certain points themselves. Not entirely convinced it is helpful to basic learners yet... we'll see.

I had no prior knowledge of German, and found that with this audiobook I was able to learn German. I would recommend buying the companion paper book published by Living Language (Ultimate German: Beginner-Intermediate by Lasting & Singer). Between listenting to each 10-minute chapter twice a day for 4 to 7 days, and reading the chapter once in that time, I was able to learn the lessons! I would highly recommend this to someone who wants to learn German without taking a class.

I find All-Audio German to be very well done: well-organized, well-executed, entertaining, and very informative. It could be a bit difficult for someone entirely new to German. But, to someone who has a rudimentary understanding of the language and its grammar, I find it to be an excellent source for learning on the go!
