As an American, that is now fluent in German, I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning German. However, like everything else in life, you CANNOT be lazy and expect to do well!

This was the third time for me doing this grammar. It is crystal clear for the most part, progressing in a logical way. The recordings are quite intelligible (when I actually listen to them - I prefer cinema!) and same for the workbooks, which I also neglect because I have no answer guide anyway.

Textbook has a good flow, however I felt that some items were introduced out of order and that there was not enough grammar practice provided. I'd like to see clearer examples at the beginning of the exercises, in order to show students an example of what the exercise is looking for.

This is an introductory textbook, and is very good for someone who is completely new to the language. I feel that a more challenging/advanced textbook is needed for mastery of the language in non-introductory college
Revisiting my old university text, and finding it as reliable, clear, and inclusive as I need.

A great book for establishing the foundations for German grammar and vocabulary. Sets the tone for more in-depth grammar texts, and takes the reader slowly from the very beginning of German - numbers, alphabet, and rudimentary greetings - to more complex means of expression. In some istances, items of grammar and German culture could have been explained more fully, but overall an excellent text for any student beginning her/his study of the German language.

From this book, I learned some very elementary German. I also forgot most of it.
