Best German Readers

The first reader Super 500 – based on the 500 most common German words – begins at an A1 level and builds up your vocabulary and grammar through a clever way of presenting the same words and phrases in different variations many times until they really stick in your mind. The easy readers 2 and 3 further enlarge your vocabulary and consolidate your understanding of German grammar. Now you are ready for an entertaining selection of short stories that begin with an intermediate reader Super 1000, which – you guessed it – is based on the 1000 most common words in German, followed by three intermediate readers that really take you through all walks of life. When you’ve done all this without too much effort, the last book – Super Grammar – gives you a solid revision of the grammar already learned and then some more to get you ready for C-Level German.
