Fastele ,

Excellent German course

Really well structured with a logical progression and accessible content. Thank you to Mark and the team!

This podcast is what makes it all stick!

Really glad I’ve found this - it’s the perfect complement to other forms of learning. I find duolingo/Babbel really useful for vocab but can never remember the grammar rules... enter coffee break German! It’s much easier when you can actually hear someone explain it :) thanks guys!

So helpful!

Love this podcast so much, it’s so helpful, I’ve been raving about it to all who will listen. I love listening to Mark and Andrea, they make a great duo and make the lessons really fun and engaging. I hope they do another long series like season 2 with specific grammar lessons followed by some language in context, as more guidance at a higher level of German would be so so helpful! They mentioned a few things they would come back to in later series with the different tenses, genitive case and tricky grammatical constructions so I really hope that those will be in future series. Cannot recommend enough and I’ve really enjoyed their inclusion of culture segments to learn more about German-speaking countries as well as the language!
