As the last lesson told, it's hard to depart from this lovely book... the things we've been through together.

A very friendly, open-minded, concise, plain-written book; a must-have for any Language learner.

Assimil + Michel Thomas = It's on, baby!

I finished this book today, and here is my review.

I started off doing a lesson each day using a Pomodoro timer. At that pace, you can complete this book in just over 3 months. However, later on I doubled my workload and I covered the last 40 chapters in 18 days.

The structure of the book is as follows: there is a German text on the left page, with the English translation on the right page. There are footnotes within the German text to explain pertinent grammatical points.

After the text, there are

Probably another huge minus is the lack of any dictionary at the end, which is strange for the Assimil books.
I think that the book, also, uses a bit older orthography (for example, scharfes s where nowa

Took over 2years to finish (among other German studies) but I finally did it. It's a solid foundation for any future study and I felt fairly confident with longer German intermediate texts (outside of the book) after about lesson 75 without the need to lookup grammar.

Can be quite boring to stick at it consistently as each text will take multiple sittings and recapping to properly absorb. Nevertheless, it's a solid method and I'll be using Assimil for any future language that I study.
