First, a confession. I have to admit to a certain nostalgic feeling about the Living Language series. Many years ago (I refuse to say just how many), as a student at Tulane University, I used the Living Language records (yes, that long ago) to learn some Spanish before a trip to the Yucatán peninsula with a college buddy. I remember both the trip and my Spanish-language experiences fondly. We were headed for places well off Mexico's beaten path and realized we would need at least a modicum of español to get by. Our Living Language lessons did the job. Although we had the usual language misadventures that beginners always do, we had a better experience because of our linguistic efforts. I also credit this adventure and Living Language for starting my serious foreign language involvement. There were other factors, of course, but I didn't start my study of German until after this Feuertaufe (baptism of fire).

If you're headed for German Europe–on or off the beaten path–I highly recommend you prepare in a similar fashion. It may not lead to a new career, but it will definitely be rewarding! Below are links to reviews and sources of several Living Language/Random House German courses at various levels.
