9780764551956: German For Dummies

You’ll find German spoken all over the world – German tourists are famously intrepid – and especially across much of Europe, including (besides Germany, of course) Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, the Czech Republic, and several other countries. Whether you’re taking a trip to Germany or just want to surprise your German neighbor with a “hi-how-are-you,” learning this language will help you see the world and yourself from an entirely different perspective.

German For Dummies uses the renowned Berlitz approach to get you up and running with the language – and having fun too! Designed for the total beginner, this guide – with dialogue and pronunciation audio CD included – will introduce you to basic grammar, then speedily have you talking about:

  • Dining out
  • Shopping
  • The office
  • Planning a trip
  • Recreation
  • Partying
  • Trains, planes, and automobiles

In addition to the audio conversations, fun and games sections ease your way into German fluency, while phonetic spellings following expressions and vocabulary improve your pronunciation, and helpful boxes and sidebars cover cultural quirks and factoids. And, in trademark For Dummies fashion, you’ll go beyond expressions for checking train schedules or buying potatoes to learn:

  • Things never to say in German
  • Ways to pick up German quickly
  • Phrases that make you sound German
  • Holidays to remember
  • Emailing and Internet vocabulary
  • German TV and movie vocabulary
  • How to browse and window-shop in Germany with style

Whether you’re just looking for a greeting besides “Guten tag,” or you want to host a foreign exchange student, or want to become one yourself, German For Dummies gives you what you need to learn the language – as much as you like, as fast as you like. Gehen wir! (gehn veer) (Let’s get going!)
