Review Text

  • By WE5 on 18 February 2015

    The book is excellent. Really useful material with notes on levels of speech, regional variations, and enough background grammar succinctly presented to make it immediately applicable.Although an offer, it came within a day or two, and was as new.

    An incredibly useful book detailing all aspects of the German language, including regional differences and how to translate those little words. I bought it recently during my final year of a German degree, but I just wish I had bought it sooner!

    This is a superb reference text. Not a textbook in the sense that you can study it from front to back, but rather a book you will keep returning to time and again.
