I’ve received a mobi.file [KINDLE] copy of this book through a giveaway the author had on LibraryThing and the following is my honest opinion.

Having taken German in college as the language, and still able to speak it from time to time when I find someone to speak it with, I found this book to be quite useful for anyone who’s seriously interested in being able to begin learning Germanspeak it, especially if they’re considering a trip to Austria or Germany.

The author begins her book by telling her readers how to pronounce the letters of the alphabet by doing it phonetically in English. The book is then broken down by categories which any visitor will find useful, with simple phrases to help them with routine requests. Unfortunately the download I got did not allow me to go from the Table of Contents directly to the section I was interested in looking at.

While the book doesn’t really help one with all the grammar of German it does fulfill its mission of giving its readers the basics of the German language. It’s a good refresher for anyone who had taken the language in school.

For opening the door of the German language to anyone interested in learning the basics of this language, I’m giving Ms. Swan 4 STARS.
