    I love this series of language readers! This particular short story collection covers vocabulary for travel, such as luggage, airport terminology, and simple introductions to living spaces and regionally specific cafes. My level in German is really above the intended audience at this point, but I still enjoy the colloquial phrasing and bits of culture I can still glean from these enjoyable stories. Since they are intended for an adult learner, they are more relevant situations, which also helps I love this series of language readers!

Since they are intended for an adult learner, they are more relevant situations, which also helps to hold your attention. Like asking questions at the airport, talking about problems with your bags, or ordering at a restaurant, instead of situations geared to children with less useful vocabulary but a similarly simplistic sentence structure. I would recommend reading them in order unless you're closer to an A2 level, as I started with the third book in the series, because two of my best friends live in Köln and I didn't know some of the phrases used and they weren't included in the translated word bank.

    Another well-structured and entertaining German reader for beginners from André Klein. I think this one might be slightly higher level than Café in Berlin.

    As it mentioned, I tried Lesenfluss for the first time and didn't look up the new words, but managed to get the gist of the stories as I kept reading. It has bolded the new words and has English equivalents in the end. Also it has a few comprehensive questions for each story. Good for beginners.

    Dino books are such fun. I love getting to know German and Germany along side him, it feels like we are in this crazy adventure called immigration together. The chapter called "Überraschungsbesuch" was weird, and Dino's reaction not very plausible, but it certainly kept me interested! Overall a good read, and I highly recommend it for A2-ish level German learners. Dino books are such fun.

    wish these were graded I was hoping to improve my german through reading. The problem is this book was much too easy for me, I barely learned any new words. It would be nice if they would be graded for the language learner z.b. A1, B1, or C1

    This series is really helping my progress and confidence in German. Instead of reading basic textbook stuff about introductions, hobbies, jobs etc., I am instead learning vocabulary like pub, cider, skyscraper and suit. I like the modern feel to the story. The dialogue between Dino and the people he meets seems 'real' and up to date. This series is really helping my progress and confidence in German.

    It's happening... with each short story, I'm reaching less and less frequently for the dictionary to define words I've encountered previously and forgotten!! Brand new words, of course, I need to look up - but as my familiarity with the language grows, I am beginning to recognize roots, prefixes, and suffixes and, many times, I will have an excellent guess on the definition before confirming it (and sometimes I've missed by a mile). I'm enjoying this immensely. It's happening... with each short story, I'm reaching less and less frequently for the dictionary to define words I've encountered previously and forgotten!!

    My second German-language book, and not quite as silly and fun as the first one. Not a lot happens here, but our little protagonist mooches off of his wealthy banker brother in Frankfurt while learning about the city and local culture from the landlord’s daughter, who is like a Frankfurt cheerleader. Ted, his ne’er do well American roommate from Berlin makes a cameo and they take a sort of pensive trip to the zoo.

    Dino visits his Großer Bruder in Frankfurt and is much more wholesome for it. The Berlin Dino lusted after blonde-haired blue-eyed Swedes, ate 2 euro donners and lived in an filthy apartment with his fellow immigrants. Frankfurt Dino mostly jibes his brother about working too much and resolves to learn Deutsch.

    A great book for someone that fall in level beginner-intermediate. I found it great because I already have studied German but don't always practice it. The stories are very interesting and I learnt many new vocabulary and expressions through this book in the easiest way. A great book for someone that fall in level beginner-intermediate.

    As the previous one, a good way to train one's reading ability in German. The story is interesting to follow, to new words are used twice most of the time. A good helper to people learning German. As the previous one, a good way to train one's reading ability in German. The story is interesting to follow, to new words are used twice most of the time.

    This was for studies purposes but it was such a good story. Helped me with some vocabulary. Though it didn't prove as much of a challenge for me. This was for studies purposes but it was such a good story. Helped me with some vocabulary. Though it didn't prove as much of a challenge for me.
