Is there something similar to Lingua Latina for German?

Dear all,
I have found Lingua Latina effective for acquiring Latin, and I am wondering if anyone knows of similar type books to learn German.

Thanks

Try searching for "Deutsche Spachlehre für Ausländer". I'm using it to learn German, and it's quite good. No English or any other language besides German is used in this book.

Dear Amadeus,
I'll take you up on this book. Just to make sure, does it happen to be by:
Dora Schulz and Heinz Griesbach.

thanks

I find "Deutsch - Warum Nicht?" from Deutsche Welle and following courses quite interesting and useful.

I've been using Beginning French: A Cultural Approach by Hendrix & Meiden, which is based around progressive readings and related exericises. It is now (sadly) out of print, but used copies shouldn't be too difficult to find. The major drawback is, of course, that there is no accompanying audio (and for French this really is a problem...)

For the advanced learner, Schulz and Griesbach also wrote an excellent systematic grammar of the German language with many elaborated examples for the non-native users. I think it is called Grammatik der deutschen Sprache (simple and plain), but I cannot be sure right now.

It's OK. I can get listening and speaking practise from other sources.

Amadeus, where did you acquire Deutsche Sprachlehre für Ausländer? Are you using GoogleBooks? because I can only find Teil 2.

Why, from Amazon.com, of course! Google Deutsche Sprachlehre and you'll see a German Amazon page, access it and then you'll see a link to the American site at the top. The edition I got is a bit old, but I'm not complaining. I'm enjoying it very much!

Oh, wait... I just tried that and it didn't work. Just search for Deutsche Sprachlehre on Amazon.com. :wink:
