Reviews - What do customers think about Berlitz Rush Hour German (German Edition)?

silly, but surprisingly helpful  May 17, 2008
I bought this before heading to Germany for vacation and I had already been learning some German on my own via other sources for a few weeks. I listened to this CD in my car for about a week and though the running storyline for the skits is a bit cheesy, the songs stuck in my head and the dialogue was actually very helpful and the pronounciation was very good. My kids even starting repeating the phrases. I recommend it for anyone that wants a no-stress beginning German review or to start with some basics.
Rush Hour German CD Review  Feb 8, 2008
The CD's are helpful and the musical aspects help you pick it up fast. For someone who wants to be able to have basic conversations in German in a few days, this product is quite useful.
Torture!  Dec 29, 2007
I'm a great believer in the "listen and repeat" method of foreign language learning. Unfortunately, the opportunity for repetition is foregone in favor of these ridiculous ditties. Each lesson begins with large chunks of dialogue, mostly in English, before launching into an endless stream of irritating songs which seem to serve no purpose other than to reduce the clarity of the vocabulary. The "engaging" scenarios are just plain dumb. I was seduced by the Berlitz name; more fool me.

"Drive Time Italian" was much more useful for actually beginning to speak the language and I supplemented the vocabulary with Rick Steve's little wonder book. So, I'm good for Italy but will have to depend on recall from high-school for Germany.
A great way to start  Jun 1, 2007
I am just beginning to learn German and this (along with a book) was my first purchase. I gotta say this was money WELL spent. A great introductory tool. The songs really make the German stick with you and some are downright catchy, even if they are a bit cheesy ( I wasn't expecting Led Zeppelin ). The accompanying booklet helps with any words that may sound unclear at first or are spoken quickly. A workmate of mine took 2 years of German in school and is blown away by how much I've learned so quickly. If your goal, like mine, is to become fluent you're gonna need alot more of course, but this is a great way to begin. Especially if you're stuck in traffic most days.
Ugh! No way!  May 24, 2007
Ugh, I couldn't even get past the first CD.

The music is awful, but I could forgive that if I felt that the songs were helping me learn. They just get in the way - they totally missed the point of musical learning, in that none of the songs present the language in a manner that sticks, it's just distracting. And the music makes it *very* hard to hear all the subtle intonations of the pronunciation.

I took German in college, and do have a background with this language, I wanted a refresher course. This is NOT the refresher course I was after!
