  1. Overall ok, but I find the explanation by the grammar guru insufficient. I understand that she wants to keep it simple but in this lesson, it does not help.

  2. Mark what is the difference between (wohnen and lieben) both mean (to live),

    I can say : Ich wohne in Berlin oder Ich lebe in Berlin.

  3. @Asma

    Wohnen means to live but as in a location. Ich wohne in Berlin.

    Leben means to live in the sense of a breathing individual. Ich lebe, weil mein Herz schlägt. I live because my heart is beating.

    Hope that helps.
