Ausgezeichnet!

I used to be fluent, but have gotten rusty in recent years. I listened to this podcast to prepare for a trip to Germany this summer and it helped me so much. While there, I was able to use vocabulary I’d learned through the podcast and felt confident in my grammar too because of the hosts’ excellent lessons. Dankeschön!

Great Way to Learn

I am currently on Season 2 Episode 12 and am thoroughly enjoying this app. The lessons really help me learn and improve my German. Es ist ausgezeichnet! Ich wurde es zu alle meine Freunde empfehlen. So far my favorite (am liebsten) episodes were the ones that took place in Innsbruck. Thank you to Mark, Thomas, Julia, Kirsten, Andrea and the entire Coffee Break German team! Danke schön!

It’s great, nothing else to really say

I listen to this whenever I find I am not doing anything, and it really progressed my German.

Thank you!
