Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Designed for people who wish to learn a foreign language for business or vacation purposes, DK's "Hugo" series of audio language courses is perfect for libraries in need of good, inexpensive language cassettes. They help illustrate many of the model words or phrases as well as provide oral exercises that strengthen the student's pronunciation and listening skills. The series takes a realistic approach to learning a foreign language by reinforcing the concept that acquiring knowledge of any foreign language takes time. Users begin with an introduction to word pronunciation, vowels and consonants, and basic grammar conventions. There are a few differences in what is covered by the four languages. For example, the Italian series does not offer the concluding practice reading sessions that the other languages do. One minor quibble: the binding on the study guides does not seem to have been designed for the strenuous use they will see in libraries. Those who wish to begin acquiring a practical base knowledge of French, German, Italian, or Spanish will find DK's series a good choice. Recommended for public and academic libraries.--John Charles, Scottsdale P.L., AZ

German In Three Months 2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

If your only goal is to have an undestanding of how the german language functions grammatically then this course is for you. In my opinion,however,grammar rules are presented in chunks that are too large and at the same time not enough practice material is given..You have to learn a lot of grammar rules at a time but are given very little practice material.A much better course is Living Language's 'Ultimate German' An ambitious learner could easily complete that course in 3 months and would actually be able to speak/read/write german at a fluent level.'Ultimate German' is also MUCH more enjoyable..another one NOT to get is foreign service institutes 'Mastering German'
