Travelers with intermediate-level knowledge of German, and language students on intermediate and advanced levels will value this book as a key to getting past the slang barrier and grasping German and its idioms as people actually speak the language. More than 4,000 words or colloquial expressions seldom found in standard bilingual dictionaries are listed alphabetically and defined. A phrase or short sentence is presented in German to give readers a sense of the word or expression as it is used in various contexts, and is followed with an English translation. Because of the nature of the subject matter, books in this series necessarily contain expressions that some readers will find offensive.

Good book

Avis d'utilisateur  - mco2003 - Overstock.com

Being German (born and raised in Germany for 20 years) I bought this for my husband who is trying to learn German. Slang is the hardest to understand and learn and this book has a lot of good examples. Caution though because some sayings are used differently in different parts of Germany.
