"We recently purchased this DVD series for our daughter. We are going to Germany early next year to visit the grandparents and we wanted her to be start learning German. This video is excellent and has exceeded our expectations. Our daughter watches it over and over because she gets a real kick out of the animated dog. She also likes to show off her knowledge to us while doing the remote control games. We have been amazed that after only a few times watching the video she aced the true/false and multiple choice interactive games. We've been having fun practicing phases around the house to get prepared for our trip. The telling time section in particular we have found very useful. It helps with counting, how to ask someone the time and most importantly understanding what is repeated back. I would recommend this to anyone, child or adult, who is a beginning German student."
Interesting video scenes

"I bought this for my 7 and 2 year old children as a supplement after finishing the German for Children CD series. This video covers all of the same ground (eerily so: does everyone learn their German colors from a balloon seller?). While my children loved the "home movies" of Sebastian and his friends at a birthday party, the quiz portion is tedious after you've done it once, and the songs on this dvd are not nearly as catchy as those on the German for Children CD. There's also a lot of cheesy low budget animation. Go with the CDs series."

"This is a cute video that provides a unique story-line for children to relate to."
