german short stories for beginners 8 unconventional short stories to grow your vocabulary and learn german the fun way Reviews
The format of this book is good, but the literary quality is atrocious. You can write simple prose without making the plots ridiculous and the dialogue super weird. The only story that had any good qualities was the Viking story, the modern time ones (especially the first) were unfortunately really bad.
I studied basic German some 25 years ago. I was losing it quickly due to lack of practice, and i wanted to improve it to be able to read some books i have. The stories in this book are quite simple but easy to follow, and i recovered some words i had forgotten and i learnt a lot more. A good bit of practice! Moving on to the next level.
Excellent learning methodI had enjoyed the way this books encourage the reader to proceed reading and delay the need to accurately understand each new word till end of chapter. The authors explain this method and it works for me.The amount of new words and the practical use of daily conversation is a great lesson in short form.
Great book for beginners (more for low-intermediate level). Stories are fun and short enough to keep you focused and curious to see what happens next. I never studied German through any formal teaching methods, just from a bit of Duolingo and specially Anki. Added this book to read on Readlang and saw that I added about 100 unknown new words for each story, summing up more than 800 over the book.Worthwhile book, I recommend it. Got the book from Kindle Unlimited for free.
2.5/5. Good learning approach, but the stories themselves are average at best.
