Publisher's Summary

Are you bored with the traditional methods people tell you to use to learn German? Are you bored with all those dusty grammar books that pile up making everything look so hard? What if we told you there's a better, more enjoyable way to learn German and grow your vocabulary exponentially? Well, guess what? There is! The best way to learn German is by listening to short stories. The problem? You might feel like you don't know where to start, or you may feel lost trying to read whatever pops up on the Internet. And that's exactly why we created this book.
We know how difficult it may seem to learn a foreign language from scratch, let alone trying to put all that learning into practice. But what you might not realize is that it's fairly easy to fully incorporate the essentials of a language once you frame that learning into a certain context (for example, a short story). Short stories allow you to put what you've learned so far into practice, allowing you to expand your vocabulary quickly, make sense of ideas, understand new concepts, and overall get a better grasp of the German language.
Short stories work because they eliminate the stress of forcing yourself to learn. Instead, when you listen to the nine captivating short stories we've prepared for you, you will learn German without even realizing you're learning it! The stories consist of multiple genres, including adventure, fantasy, mystery, romance, just to name a new. We wanted these stories to be fun, interesting, and appealing, motivating you to keep on listening to find out what happens next. That's the very best way to learn, don't you think?

Great for learners

I'll give it a second listen, a lot of stories here, and varied. I'm sure using the printed version as well would be better, but I am using this to complement a classroom based course and only have my commuting time to spare; so I have gone audio only. Dieses Buch gefällt mir.
