Better German Books

Great Features


right Vocabulary

On beginner levels, easy words are used and the amount of different words used is more when you read a higher leve. Each of the levels of books uses a vocabulary that fits the exact level of your German.



Just like the vocabulary, also grammar is learned step by step. So, in the beginner level courses, the grammar used is what you learned and the higher the level the more different kinds of sentences are introduced.



Every book comes with a glossary of unusual words. Words that are likely new to you are translated to English, so you can look them up right there and expand your vocabulary while still understanding what you read.



There are seven levels of books, starting with “Easy Start” and then levels 1-6. Each level uses real German. “Easy Start” is right for you if you have recently started learning German. Each level has longer stories, bigger vocabulary, longer sentences.



The books are available as physical printed books, and as E-Book, both through Amazon, but also in the Better German Academy. You have all options!
