Overview

Learn over 50 essential words at the heart of German and how to put them together to make yourself understood. This one-hour 'taster' course is the first hour of the eight-hour Foundation German course and will get you speaking the language immediately: no books, no pens, no memorizing - just listen, connect and speak.

What's new?
This new edition includes remastered audio.

How does it work?
During the course, you will join Michel Thomas and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. You, as the learner, become the third student and participate actively in the class. Within the very first hour you will be able to construct simple phrases by listening and thinking out answers for yourself without the pressure of writing or memorizing. You'll stick with it because you'll love it.

Why is the method so successful?
The Michel Thomas Method was perfected over 50 years by celebrated psychologist and linguist Michel Thomas. This unique method works with your brain and draws on the principles of instructional psychology. Knowledge is structured and organised so that you assimilate the language easily and don't forget it. The method breaks down the language into building blocks that are introduced sequentially in such a way that you create your response and move on to ever-more-complex sentences. There is no need to stop for homework, additional exercises or vocabulary memorization, so you progress rapidly.

What's in the Course?*
Start German comprises one audio CD. It is the first hour of the eight-hour Foundation German course. The booklet is available to download from www.michelthomas.com.

*Note that the course content is the same as the previous Start German edition, but contains remastered audio.

Learn anywhere
Don't be tied to chunky books or your computer, Michel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player.

Where do I go next?
Foundation German (ISBN: 9781473692879) follows on from the Start German course with seven audio CDs and two audio review CDs.

About the Author

Michel Thomas was born in Poland, he spent his early years in Germany and then in France, where he studied psychology at the Sorbonne in Paris. When war broke out, he fought with the Resistance and suffered imprisonment in labour camps. At the end of the war he joined the US liberation army and later settled in the US where he established his world-famous language school. Languages, being his strength and passion became the focus of the next 50 years of his life that he spent developing a method that he hoped would change the way we teach and learn - so that everyone could succeed. He developed this method 'that works with the brain'. After creating several courses of his own, he passed on his method so that other teachers might use it too.
