Ashley Mitchell, June 23, 2007 (view all comments by Ashley Mitchell)
I haven't had a chance to use any of the phrases in this book in practical situations but I feel like I have all the bases covered for when the day comes after being given this book as a gift. Included are slang phrases, unusual questions, insults, comments, come-ons, quips and retorts, along with helpful chapter introductions that should be good for anyone wanting to really expand their vocabulary or just to know a few things as a beginning German language student or traveler wanting a good handbook/alternative dictionary.
