Great for brushing up on your German!

I purchased this book because I was once fluent in German and have become quite rusty while having no one to speak with. This book was exactly what I was looking for! It provides multiple stories with beginner to intermediate vocabulary difficulty levels. The first story wa a great choice as it gave me quite a big confidence boost. The vocab and grammar were very easy to follow along with and I was happy that I understood the whole story. Furthermore, the performances by Susana Larraz and Ellen Goldmund were PERFECT! They spoke clearly and slow enough to follow along, but not so slow that the story dragged on. This is a great book to listen to over and over to either improve your German skills, or brush up when you have become rusty.
