Publisher's Summary

Do you know the biggest secret to learning German quickly? To enjoy the material!

If you're struggling with German conjugations or looking for helpful and engaging reading material you can actually understand, you're not alone. This is exactly what inspired us to write another book in our highly praised German learning series.

How is a student supposed to learn when language instructors love providing materials that are tough, expert-level literature with tons of grammar and rules? That style of book for new language learners can be overwhelming and lead you to flip back and forth between a dictionary and your book constantly! Not an effective use of your time nor the best way to learn.

Meet German Stories for Beginners Volume 2 featuring 20 easy-to-listen, engaging, fun stories that will help you significantly grow your vocabulary, speed up your comprehension, and provide you the tools to improve your grasp of the German language. 

All stories are designed with beginner German learners in mind and using vocabulary that you could easily use in your day-to-day conversations. This program is excellent for those who want to get an introduction to the language or brush up on their German language skills.

Even if you have failed multiple times to learn German, we guarantee that these exciting short stories will give you words and phrases you can start using with native German speakers immediately. It’s time to add the rocket fuel you need to boost your confidence and finally grasp the language!

What are you waiting for? Buy the audiobook German Short Stories for Beginners to start learning the fun way!

The narrator makes learning German easy!

I was able to understand each vocabulary clearly word and follow along with what I was hearing. I got the previous two audiobooks and this one didn't not let me down. Get this audiobook and don't forget to download the PDF companion document, it's a big help.

Short stories with a lot of German

The narrator makes these stories very enjoyable. I was afraid that I wouldn't have anything to do during the pandemic. I was certainly wrong as the allowed me to work on my goal to learn German. 20 Engaging stories at an easy-to-follow pace. It helped having a list of vocab words at the end along with a summary both in English and German. Not to mention the clever comprehension questions ensured I grasped what I was hearing.

Thank you so much!

Give this German audiobook a shot. Listening to these stories made me appreciate the German langauge that much more. I used to become flustered when trying to learn German in a classroom setting, however this is a great no-pressure way of learning on my own pace. The narrator is delightful to listen to.

Learning German During the Pandemic

Pretty good material. I have to say the narrator was superb, he makes what otherwise is considered a dull experience very manageable. I was so wrapped up in the narrator's wonderful performance that learning German was surprisingly fun! His variation of vocal tones and character interactions made it a great listen. The companion doc is a nice bonus.

Clear and precise pronunciation

Wonderful! This series of German short stories has been a great way for me to immerse myself in the language, hashing out not just how individual verbs are conjugated, but how German itself flows and structures itself. Such a great resource for foreign languages that give real world situations to learn from. The vocabulary is broken down into easy understandable parts for each story. The narration in both languages is easy to understand.

Decent German Learning Tool

Language skills are difficult to obtain from written books, and I think audiobooks are a much better format. At first I was worried I wouldn't understand and of the German. To my surprise these stories are easy to follow and I can slow the pace down if need be with the app. The stories vary greatly plot and are quite fun. The narrator did a nice job.

Narrator's Pacing is "On Point"

I love the stories in this book. They are carefully selected to be engaging, yet informative. He narrates with a warm and welcoming voice which I thought really helped for learning German. I've listened to the audiobook several times and enjoy it more every time. The whole point is to use common words in the German language within a fun context. Although, I had a little bit of German knowledge, this book served as a great resource for improving my comprehension, especially through the exercises. This is a very useful and interesting book.

Delightful learning experience

Superb, high-quality audio and narration. If you're looking for a good way to learn German this is it! It's worth grabbing a copy simply from the entertainment aspect. There's a PDF document that comes with it too for those visual learners out there. Several helpful with phrases and stories that will have you master German like a native. The voice-over performer was quite fluent, clear and patient when he was going back and forth with the easy translations and what they mean. So when you get a chance pick up a copy and enjoy.

Good Audiobook in German

Probably not the best for someone who doesn't know any German whatsoever...However, the companion doc can also help with that. I found that the stories increased in difficulty chapter by chapter, which allowed for me to expand my German comprehension much quicker. The recap and tricky questions for each story were a nice touch.
