Great book for people who are learning to read. The narrator speaks slowly so it makes it easy to follow. Its also great having an easy story for adults rather than having to read childrens books!
Would you consider the audio edition of Karneval in Köln (Learn German with Stories - 10 Short Stories for Beginners) to be better than the print version?
I now have bought both the audible and eBook version of this book , they go hand in hand. It is not easy to find good books at a upper beginner to intermediate level of German and the author addresses this area in excellent fashion. Some of the German phrases have been used in earlier books which I like thus revising from the past along with new phrases and ideas . Would like to see some of the authors other / non beginner range of books done in audio fashion in the future. Go for it please Andre.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Karneval in Köln (Learn German with Stories - 10 Short Stories for Beginners)?
Recommend , recommend , recommend My level of German has improved immensely since I started buying this series of books. They are price friendly also.
Have you listened to any of André Klein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have bought all of the 3 audio books that exist at this point in time. They are all excellent , they are not too long or not short . Being able to speed up the spoken text with the Audible App is a great bonus also.

The recording is great for a beginner. The pronunciation is clear. I enjoyed this recording.
First time listening didn't understand much maybe a word or two every other sentence and it's amazing how much I understood the second time! :) I'll try it again for a third after I listen to a different story or two
It's been a long while since the previous installment came out in audio, and I haven't looked at the printed version in a while too, but it's really great to be able to understand the audio. Andre' is one of a kind in this niche of German learning tools through stories.
Good pace and very clear narration. I could easily follow the story without any difficulty
From context, you can discover so much in terms of grammar, pronunciation conjugation, etc., if you're trying to learn a new language. Once you know a good handful of nouns and verbs, this is a great way to see how they go together.
Every time you listen, you pick up another word you didn't realize the first time around. I bought every one in this series. I love Ferien in Frankfurt too.

Without the text you won't be able to visualize the words being said. Without a translation you can get off on the wrong track. These 2 flaws are enough for someone like me who needs to visualize the words to help with learning retention to stay away. I am surprised there were so many glowing reviews and I suspect that is kind of fishy.

Textbooks are never enough on their own. Stories really help with picking up vocabulary and these ones are great. They make me want to go and experience the carnival first hand.
I really like these series of books on audible to work alongside my hard copy of books that I read as well.
Let's hope there's more to come
Where does Karneval in Köln (Learn German with Stories - 10 Short Stories for Beginners) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Any additional comments?
Unbelievably annoying, maniacal and loud harmonica 'muzak' suddenly bursts against your eardrums - after listening to the calm and soothing voice of the reader this makes for a real shock and has me lurching to the mute button as fast as I possibly can. Starting to feel real dread when starting and finishing the audiobooks as I need to prepare to stop this really irritating sound! It really does put me off listening.
