The episodes also feature Kirsten, our Grammar Guru, and Julia, our Cultural Correspondent.

      Congratulations on a well put-together series of lessons! I love your approach, particularly the structure and the informal conversational nature of the lessons. The cultural and grammar segments add a great deal and I’ve found the support materials, especially the lesson notes, very helpful (so much so that I’ve just downloaded the first of the study packs). I find it occasionally frustrating that you say that we’ll come back to a particular point in a future lesson but I understand that you can’t cram everything in at once – I’m just eager to learn more!

      I’m in my fifties and ‘did’ German in school. I’ve had a number of visits to Germany over the years, usually in company, so I realise how little practical knowledge of the language that I have. Your course has given me the confidence to organise a solo motorbike tour of Germany later this year, something I’m really looking forward to!

      Keep up the good work!
