    Get this book!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am a junior in college. When I first started out as a freshman,there was a scholarship contest for students to go travel to Germany. Well, I was and still to this day am a Romance Language majorer. German is not a romance language. I know this and so do you, but I wanted badly to go to Germany.The winners who won were to arrive in germany the summer semester of the following year. there where to be a total of six winners all together.(2fromUSA,2fromCanada and 2fromMexico)I called up B&N to order this little beauty, and I ordered colloquial german begginers set.About $35.00, but effective! I studied both materials and won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I also was more accepted among the youth, both my age(21) and younger. They really didn't take to the others that well! They said that they spoke to proper.These people who came along with me were Germanic majorers, and had been taking German for a long time. I studied less than a year.They also thought that I was a native of some sort! Take my advice proper is goo, but if you are learning any type of language, I think that you should learn the way it is actually spoken!!!!!!
