Item Description...
Overview
Introduces conversational German, with useful phrases for greeting others, making small talk, and shopping, as well as tips on improving grammar and vocabulary.

Publishers Description
You'll find German spoken all over the world – German tourists are famously intrepid – and especially across much of Europe, including (besides Germany, of course) Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, the Czech Republic, and several other countries. Whether you're taking a trip to Germany or just want to surprise your German neighbor with a “hi-how-are-you,” learning this language will help you see the world and yourself from an entirely different perspective.

German For Dummies uses the renowned Berlitz approach to get you up and running with the language – and having fun too! Designed for the total beginner, this guide – with dialogue and pronunciation audio CD included – will introduce you to basic grammar, then speedily have you talking about:

  • Dining out
  • Shopping
  • The office
  • Planning a trip
  • Recreation
  • Partying
  • Trains, planes, and automobiles

In addition to the audio conversations, fun and games sections ease your way into German fluency, while phonetic spellings following expressions and vocabulary improve your pronunciation, and helpful boxes and sidebars cover cultural quirks and factoids. And, in trademark For Dummies fashion, you'll go beyond expressions for checking train schedules or buying potatoes to learn:

  • Things never to say in German
  • Ways to pick up German quickly
  • Phrases that make you sound German
  • Holidays to remember
  • Emailing and Internet vocabulary
  • German TV and movie vocabulary
  • How to browse and window-shop in Germany with style

Whether you're just looking for a greeting besides “Guten tag,” or you want to host a foreign exchange student, or want to become one yourself, German For Dummies gives you what you need to learn the language – as much as you like, as fast as you like. Gehen wir! (gehn veer) (Let's get going!)

It not easy to learn a foregin language.  Apr 11, 2008
As a non- English speaker, there is a hindrance for me to use this book. It might be the reason that I don't have the talent for learning German. The way it teach pronunciation is not accessible for me. After all, it still useful in the dialogue part, because it contains audio CD for listening.
 
Good as a reference book  Dec 31, 2007
This book does a decent job at teaching you some basic vocabulary, though it does have a lot of list of random words that would take a while to memorize for their usefulness. Its got pretty good grammar explanations and charts for how to modify the endings and how to change pronouns depending on what case they take. You learn some conversational german, but not a ton. Now i just use this as a refference book for looking up how to change der, die, and das (the) according to the case of the word and other stuff like that. Its not really great though for use other than that
 
Lot's of typos  Mar 26, 2007
this is a good book but you're not going to get a lot of foundation - cute exercises but not a lot of meat
 
Awesome For German Students  Jun 27, 2006
I`ve taken german class at my highschool for 2 years, but could not finish due to schedual difficulties. I bought this book to continue learning on my own and I must say, This is the best investment I have ever made on my road to learning german. Be wary though, I do not recommend this book for people who have no background in german, this book fails to explain basic fundamentals that are nessessary for a german student to learn. Overlooking this fact, this book's information is usefull and explains everything in a simple to understand format. It comes with an audio CD with most of the conversations from the book. I like this feature because it helps me to understand the tone and pronounciation of native german speakers. Another area where this book fails is it's dictionary. I recomend you purchase a english/german german/english dictionary for use with this book. But overall, I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who is seriously intrested in learning German.
 
Amazing "Merger"  Mar 9, 2006
This book is the TOP NOTCH considering the ones on German learning. The fusion between the famous know-how of Berlitz Institutions (and their methodology) with the practicability of "For Dummies" books makes German a SUPER FUN language to learn, as well as gives you the precise and necessary knowledge, right-to-the-point, straightforward info.

In addition, it comes with an audio CD, for pronunciation references, which is a great help, too.

If you want to learn German, this is a MUST in your personal library.
