Looking for German e-books with audio...

Recommended Posts

I have the J’aime Lire ap for french and looking for something similar for German. In that one I buy books and some have audio, it highlights the words as they’re read to you. Anything like this for German?

Many thanks

If you use the Kindle app on a tablet, the Whispersync function is very similar. It links up an audiobook with an e-book and it highlights the words as they are being read. But you have to buy both the e-book and the audiobook.

 

To browse books with this functionality, go to the Audible Website, then click on "browse," then under "Lists and Collections" you will see "Non-English Audiobooks," and after you click on that click on the "Whispersync for voice" search parameter that is on the bottom of the left hand side of the screen.

If you want a low-tech version with easier beginner books, The Command Performance Language Institute has some beginner books in multiple languages that have a corresponding CD to purchase. https://cpli-bookstore.myshopify.com/collections/german

Thanks so much. CDs wouldn’t work for me as I’m on the road for 6 months. But this whispersync should work, thank you!

I am nagged by the fact that I’m sure there’s something out there (interactive e-books meant for German little kids like the J’aime Lire ap has in French for french kids up to 12ish), but I stumbled on the j’aime lire one by accident and will have to wait for German serendipity to hit me, too. 😂
