I am trying to learn German with my goddaughter - So I purchased this book for her (or both of us LOL) It isn't so bad - she is picking up a lot quite fast. Madchen-Girl. She is able to speak a little too and when we went to the grocery store she pointed out things in German - it was so cute. A lady asked me if she was from German - she had the lady fooled. So it is helpful - it won't teach you how to read/write/speak perfect German but is a great starting place for children and their instructors on trying to learn the language. :)
This is a terrific book. Anytime my girls (3yrs and 6yrs) or I (the mom) want to know what that thing in everyday life is in German, we take a look in this book and we find it as well as a lot of other related words. My 3yr old likes to just look at the pictures even. Quite a few of them put me in mind of the Where's Waldo book pictures.
This book is so much more fun to learn from then the standard picture dictionaries. Each page has a beautifully illustrated picture with so much to look at and a lot of individual items beside the picture which are labeled in both languages. Great for adults and kids of all ages.
I'm an adult, learning German and I felt a fun book like this with pictures to help me remember the nouns would be a lot easier to learn from than just plain text to read.
It is that, it's good to see the picture and associate that along with the English meaning. The problem is on a few occassions (about 3) the articles were wrong. The book said the noun was a 'der' when it was a 'die' and so forth. This was huge to me because when learning German nouns, you must know the right article in order to use them in sentences correctly.
Have bought many of these books for my handicapped daughter. She loves learning new languages. These last her for, usually, more than one year. I know they would last longer under regular use but, she uses them often, and due to her limited abilities with her hands, she is very rough on them.
