I have now finished the second of these book and ready to start number three. I have tried other German language lessons including some expensive online programs. This simple system works for me. By reading and reread you begin to understand what you are reading, not the process of translating word by word to English. I new that I could never be proficient reading, hearing and speaking German if I had to translate each work or phrase to English and then back to German. I'm highly recommend these books.

This is a great continuation from the 1st graded reader by Brian Smith. The writing is VERY basic and you get a continued introduction to the word order situation in German, which can be weird for English speakers. The best part about Brian's books is that there is recorded audio for each book that he writes. It's free and is available on his website. Reading a text while listening along to the recorded audio of the text is a huge booster in language learning.

Have tried soooo many beginning/intermediate German readers--this series IMHO is totally the best--the side by side translation is so helpful when you are stuck as it translates every word-not just the one the author thinks you might not know. And the wonderful number of repetitions of a construction that the author thinks you should really learn are just great--he goes to great lengths to present these needed constructions in many slightly different variations so that you really get it and after a while you own it. I, for one, cannot memorize words, constructions or verb conjugations--I need them to be presented in a story--years later I will still remember a construction I need from a story I read. For me this is the perfect way to learn a foreign language.
