Highly Recommend!

I bought Play and Learn Spanish and am sure German is just as good! Nice graphics and animations, with fun interactive game mode.

Though I enjoyed refreshing my memory, I have already completed all levels in about two hours. There is no advancement to a higher level. Also, when playing, moving around thr screan proved to be annoying. Often moving to the correct answer would trigger an incorrect answer and penalty. This process is counterproductive for anyone trying to learn the language.

    Its really run to play with!

    It is a great tool to learn over 700 German words with.

    Such as: Die Krakenschwester (nurse)
    Or: Der Untersuchungstisch (examining table)

    It also teaches you some phrases
    EX. If i said: Ich Kann mein Buch nicht finden. Habe ich es im Badezimmer gelassen?

    You might say: Nein, es ist nicht hier.

    Or i might say: Darf ich fragen wer anruft?

    You might say: Sicherlich. Es ist ihre Zahnarstpraxis. Es ist Zeit fur ihre Untersuchung.

    So ya, it teaches you tons of phrases and words. Believe it or not, i have NEVER taken german anywhere and i learned THAT. Its fun and simple. The only problem is it doesnt teach you how to structer a sentence properly so unless you want to use one of the phrases they give you when talking to a german friend, then you cant put together a sentence since they put their words in a different order than we do. I reccomend NOT just saying german words in the order we put our words in because you could end up either affending that german person, or TOTALLY creep them out.

    The sentence problem is the only thing keeping this from a 5 star.
