Good intro

Chapter 1 was background info, didn't interest me but if you want to know the authors qualifications it's good for that.

Chapter 2 starts a brief introduction and it was very good. It breaks it down very good and I picked it up quick.

I plan on picking up the rest of the series.

strongly recommend this program!

if you are overwhelmed by trying to learn German, this will help. my wife is German and was trying to teach me but the rate at which she was teaching wasn't working. after one lesson I already know to begin a conversation with someone in germany.

A most comprehensive audio course

This is easily the most comprehensive audio-only course I have been able to find. This version from Audible is the 3rd edition of a very fine programme that has been around since the mid-nineties but this edition is a big improvement on the original -- and at a far lower price. I worked through Phase 1 from the earlier version and thoroughly enjoyed it as I always felt I was easily making good progress, I am now halfway through Audible's Phase 2.
There are 4 Phases, the first three consist of 30 half-hour lessons which give the student a considerable amount of time to practice his newly-acquired language skills. Phase 4 contains ten more 30 minute lessons to polish up everything he has learned. would think that by the end the student will be able to travel through Germany and Austria easily and be able to converse with people with relative ease.
The only other audio course to rival this one is the Michel Thomas Course -- but I much prefer this one

Super experience

I was skeptical about this German language program but I just wanted to give it a try. I am really satisfied with the method with which the speaker introduces the listener to the language. His repetitive/reminder mode of teaching is helping me to remember more and more German vocabs.

German Phase 1, Unit 01" by Pimsleur

thought this was pretty good,i worked in germany for about 9 months and it was very useful, even german grammer is not that hard when you get into it, and found a big difference with german people as they become very helpful as i started to speak small bits at a time. : )
