German for Xenophobes
Lingo Learners – German for Xenophobes
A humorous approach to German that shows that you can speak the lingo simply by using plain English.
Essential phrases will trip off your tongue, gems like:
‘It fell into the sauerkraut and disappeared’, ‘Do I have to join the tour?’, and ‘Do you work out, or is that your natural build?’
“I never thought I’d be able to say anything in German, but thanks to this book I can!” Frank Phirter
I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men and German to my horse. I would never be without my Xenophobe's Lingo Learner.
Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor 1500-1558
About the author
Drew Launay is the author of more than a dozen novels, plays, works of non-fiction, and BBC broadcasts. After discovering that the natives of other countries refused to understand what he was talking about, Drew devised the Xenophobe's way of coping with the problem and now speaks Spanish, French, Italian, and German like a true Brit. He lives in Nerja, near Malaga, Spain where he sits most days on the beach with his laptop writing to language professors and academics world-wide warning them that their number is up.
