The stories have been arranged according to their degree of difficulty and each story is accompanied by a key vocabulary section

Using this book effectively

To learn German effectively you just read each German story, one at a time and then study the dialogue after you’ve read the story.

This book is divided into three parts, the first for beginners and the second for intermediate students.The first 50 stories are for beginners and the dialogues are followed by an English translation. Vocabulary will be introduced to you at a reasonable pace, so you’re not overwhelmed with difficult words all at once. Here, you won’t have to look up every other word, but you can simply enjoy the story and absorb new expressions simply by reading and, when in doubt, you can check the important words from the vocabulary section or compare the dialogue with the English translation.

In the second part, the short stories tend to be slightly more advanced, and more German vocabulary is used in the conversations. But throughout, the German dialogue is easy-to-understand and uses vocabulary that both, those at the beginner and intermediate levels can understand, appreciate, and learn from.
