I was expecting a book to read about German grammar, which the Germans take more seriously that we in Britain. It is a series of 'questions' you answer by writing into the book, thus rendering it a little less.
However, I do like things that get to the point, which this book seems to do.
I have been doing Duolingo for years and as the group mentioned, this is a good supplement to learning Deutsch. However, it talks about alphabets and pronunciations which are foreign to me. German pronunciation is hard and it needs to be heard and pracriced. Writing the pronunciation down is not helpful to me especially the umlauts and differentiating the "ie" and "ei" pronunciation. I, however, appreciate the free access to a language app to supplement this book. But I think having an audio book to follow the text discussion and assist on pronunciation learning would have been more useful.
Tengo 3 libros de la serie Practice Makes Perfekt y este es el indicado para empezar a aprender alemán. Es necesario tener una pequeña base para poder aprovecharlo, pero te explica bastante bien la gramática y con muchos ejercicios y los divide en 3 unidades (cada uno de mayor dificultad respecto al anterior. Desventajas: a veces llega a ser repetitivo. Ojo: está en inglés.
O Alemao nao é uma das linguas mais fácieis para se aprender, contudo esse livro traz bastante exercicios praticos com respostas, tornando a aprendizagem ativa que é tudo o que poderiamos esperar de um livro com o tema Practice makes perfect. Aprender a lingua em Ingles é ótimo, pois é possivel ver muitas semelhancas entre o Alemao e o Ingles. Se voce procura um livro, colorido e com ilustracoes esse livro nao é para voce, pois ele é mais um livro com paginas em preto em branco, aonde temos a explicacao gramatical e logo apos os exercicios, contudo mais uma vez digo que sao muitos exericios e isso torna tudo muito pratico.
This book is good to fill gaps in your Grammar. But maybe not too useful if you start it without additional resources like classes. One important thing the book is much more useful if you have a thorough command of English language.
Ok, grammar is hard. German isn't the easiest...but this book definitely helps, as it progresses slowly to teach the language and is loaded with examples. This book has a lot of useful exercises to work your way through and, unfortunately, repetition is the best way to learn! Answers are given in the back as well as reference tables. I have three other language books with grammar lessons in them, and this is the best adjunct grammar guide I've seen.
This book is great because there are tons of exercises. However, I've found a handful of minor mistakes in the answer key so far. Not a deal-breaker, because clearly that means I'm learning the language, which is the goal anyways! I also like that you can access the app on your phone for more exercises! The only thing I would like more of is some explanations of grammatical rules, but maybe there are no explanations and you just have to practice. A nice supplement to Duolingo. Now, to find out a way to practice speaking more!
