German

A Self-Teaching Guide

Learn German at your own pace

Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Now you can learn how—quickly and easily—with a practical guide that gives you the tools you need to speak and understand German.

Completely revised and updated with applications of the newGerman spelling rules, this user-friendly guide provides you with the basic vocabulary and grammar you need to start speaking German right away. It includes more than 1,000 of the most frequently used words in both German-English and English-German lists, clear explanations of German grammatical structures, entertaining mini-dialogues from real-life situations that demonstrate modern usage, and cultural notes that give fresh insight into contemporary German society.

Like all Self-Teaching Guides, German allows you to build gradually on what you have learned—at your own pace. Questions and self-tests reinforce the information in each chapter and allow you to skip ahead or focus on specific areas of concern. Packed with useful, up-to-date information, this clear, concise volume is a valuable learning tool and reference source for anyone who wants to improve his or her understanding of basic German.
