(4 out of 5 stars)
"Lots of companies are putting foreign language materials on the market these days. This is not a bad product among these, either. Its focus on spoken German and everyday German, the kind you need to pick up to get around and deal with people, transportation, bureaucracies, etc., is practical and intelligent. However, don't be mislead by this CD or any other product that claims to simplify language learning: Nothing can ever beat the tried and true flash-card method, nothing can replace spending time a class once a day for a year or two. Better yet, use this CD for a couple weeks before going to LIVE in German-speaking Europe for a couple months. But don't use it to replace any of that. The CD format is a great advance, incidentally, over cassettes, in terms of repeating dialogs and sentences, custom-programming what you hear, etc."

"I purchased this CD hoping it would be something I could use in my High School German classes. Although the spoken German on the CD is lovely and articulate, I would recommend this only to people who have already had training in German and wish to brush up on pronunciation and fluency. This is a good CD, but I wouldn't use it for beginners."
