Wunderbar!!

I’ve always tried to learn languages in the past by learning vocabulary and phrases and just repeating them, but always gave up because i found it difficult to understand the language and make my own sentences. I’m lightly learning german while juggling school, and I definitely have learned more in the first 16 lessons of coffee break german than any language learning software Ive used in the past. They go through simple phrases in the first few episodes to explaining the grammar behind them so you understand what you’re saying and teach you how to use vocabulary in different grammatical situations. I really like how Mark sometimes makes mistakes so you know not to do the same and it helps you learn more about the language. The cultural aspect is also really nice to learn about the culture behind the language you’re learning, and helps you when deciding what to say in certain situations

Too much English

By the time you get to season 2, they speak too much english - ok in season 1, but they should move to more auf deutsch. And the female needs to find another word besides “genau” - wow annoying.

This podcast is still great! ,

Ich liebe diesen Podcast!

This podcast is great for beginners who want to learn German! It’s helped me a lot and I like that it teaches listeners useful phrases for traveling to German speaking countries. This show also really helps demystify the often confusing grammar cases. I love the hosts too! Strongly recommend.
