What is the best book for beginning to learn German?

November 11, 2008 by  

What is the best book for beginning to learn German? I would really like to learn German. Rosetta stone is too expensive, and I need a book, because I don’t have any fluent German speakers accessible to me. Please recommend a good book for beginning German that isn’t massively expensive.
Is that in reference to the teach yourself Beginners German or teach yourself German?

I could recommend teach yourself simply and easily, you can read the book review here. Aside from Rosetta Stone german there are other German Language Courses that might suit your budget. Try out our free course for instance (sign up on the right)

Best regards

    I like greatly the Teach Yourself series.

    The textbook we used to use in High School was “Unsere Freunde”. The second-year textbook in that series was “Die Welt der Jugend”. Both were fun to read and used real-life situations, “hip” expressions and colloquialisms, although it is a bit outdated now.
