Molto buono, ero tentata di dargli quattro stelline e gliele avrei date se non fosse stato per gli ultimi capitoli.

Riesce ad essere chiaro - nella maggior parte dei casi - in breve, cosa molto importante per quella che si definisce una self teaching guide. Io partivo da una completa ignoranza della lingua e mi ha dato delle basi sulle quali sto proseguendo felicemente.

I used this book with Duolingo and it works very well. It gives clear information about the German grammar, as well as enough examples and exercises. Unfortunately it does have some minor errors that could be very annoying for a self learner.

Fantastic book. I made it just around chapter 14, before I enrolled in my classes officially. I have an almost perfect score because this book helped guide me. I would highly recommend this to anyone trying to learn German. When I speak German to natives they get me, even when I trip up.
