With this product you start from zero, learning first survival phrases and vocabulary, and eventually progressing to a high-intermediate level of speaking and understanding German. Every lesson contains an introductory conversation and isolated vocabulary and structures, as well as full practice of all vocabulary introduced. The emphasis is on pronunciation and comprehension, and on learning to speak German. At the completion of this course, you’ll speak confidently using your wide-ranging vocabulary, and experience the language and culture with a deepening insight into a new world. Reading Lessons are included at the end of Unit 30 for each Level. These lessons, which total about three hours, are designed to first give you practice sounding out German, then to progress to reading for meaning. They also provide extensive additional vocabulary. Before you know it, you’ll be reading German with the ease and flexibility of a native speaker. A PDF file containing the combined Reading Booklets to be used with the audio lessons is included.
