5 Stars

I learnt German in high school and have been wanting to brush up on my skills, this podcast has been an easy way to get back into speaking German. I find grammar to be the most difficult element of German, so I'm glad that they explain the 'why' behind all the tricky bits. Short episodes make it easy to stay focused and keep coming back for more lessons. Vielen dank!

Zimtja ,

Excellent

Excellent for revision with good focus on actual grammar, not just learning set piece phrases. Also good because it gets into it quickly and doesn't waste time with small talk/introductions

JamesAlexander93 ,

Great series!

Learning alongside Mark from Thomas, Julia, and Kirsten has made me a much more confident German language student. His questions often mirror my own, which the team explain with simplicity and memorability. This series is driving my conversational skills, next to services like iTalki, and Duolingo - and am amazed by the power of only audio. I'd recommend this to any learner and look forward to hearing more. Danke schön!
