NEW!! ** Android App based on the book ** ** Das Verbarium ** ** Verbs are the most important part of speech of any language. German verbs are not only that, they are also building blocks for constructing other words. But they are not immutable units the way English verbs are. They are mechanisms with moving parts, as it were. This book will help you to take on an often dreaded subject - German verbs and their conjugation - as if it were a stroll among colourful houses of an old town. The way to learn how to walk around this town without getting lost is by following its streets, enjoying the picturesque surroundings, and gradually starting to feel at home.To guide you, the book explains verb conjugation in terms of colours, rather than just listing rules and exceptions. Then it presents charts of all conjugation models of the modern German language and how they apply to 920 German verbs.

    This book is a great help and beautifully done! Offers an approach to learning German verbs that is helpful for both those who are just now nervously venturing to navigate through the often intimidating slopes of the German language (like me), and those who could benefit from a quick reference to rev up the memory cogs through the author's inventive use of color! Not only are the countless charts a time-saver guide to self-study, but the author also provides some insights in explaining the various connections between different verbs and words to further accelerate the assimilation process. A book clearly written with dexterous care and genuine enthusiasm! Thank you!

    Great! Nothing like the tedious, boring textbooks you see everywhere. The visual material is designed with great care, too. I wish, however, some of the more advanced topics, like das Passiv, were covered in more detail, e.g. Vergangspassiv vs. Zustandspassiv, etc.

    German is not my dream language, but I believe I can learn it one day. When I saw tables filled with colorful German verbs, I got excited! I thought right away that this book is definitely different from other black and white mostly boring grammar books and has its own unique approach of teaching German verb conjugation. The explanation of how German verbs are conjugated is simple here because the author organized the verbs by the personal pronouns in colorful patterns which make them easier to memorize than all of the variations of the verbs. I think the book is worth its price.
