Main description

Teach Yourself takes the pain out of picking up the German language

Get Started in German requires no prior experience in the language and gives you the opportunity to study at a reasonable, steady pace. This course makes the process nearly painless--it is written in a friendly and supportive tone, and the structure offers you plenty of opportunities for self-practice. You are in control of your learning experience, so you never feel overwhelmed or rushed.
This practical course introduces the new language without inundating you and includes dialogues and exercises, a helpful pronunciation section, manageable lists of practical vocabulary, a glossary of grammar terms, and more.


  • Lots of instant help with common problems and quick tips for success, based on the author’s many years of experience
  • Tests in the book to keep track of your progress
