Thomas is a native speaker of German from the southern German region of Bavaria. Currently completing a Masters at Innsbruck University in Austria, Thomas also has lots of experience teaching German to native English speakers. Thomas is delighted to be involved in Coffee Break German.
As the Managing Director of Radio Lingua and host of Coffee Break French and Coffee Break Spanish, Mark is well-placed to take on a new language in this series. The tables are turned as he’ll be learning German along with you, but using his experience of languages to ask the right questions!
While Mark and Thomas focus on the language in use, we also take a closer look at the patterns of the language with our resident Grammar Guru. Kirsten is a self-confessed “grammar geek” with an honours degree in German. Having mastered German as a foreigner, Kirsten has already gone through the learning process, so she can explain the complexities of German grammar and help you to understand the patterns and utilise them yourself.
Learning a language is about much more than the language itself: culture plays such an important role. In each lesson of Coffee Break German, Julia will introduce an element of culture from the German-speaking world. A native of Berlin, Julia is passionate about sharing all aspects of German, Austrian and Swiss culture with learners.

Really impressive program. I was using the free podcast for the first few lessons, then upgraded to the paid subscription. The video flashcards are extremely helpful and the grammar guru sections are a nice break from the dialogue. The whole thing is professional and polished. A real pleasure to study with - recommended.TexasBrink
iTunes US Review
Definitely I believe the premium Coffee Break German is worth it, especially because the spelling and pronunciation in German are often quite different from English, so it helps to see how the words are actually spelled. The PDF files and video versions of the podcasts are very helpful and well designed.Florence Lin Erman
Your course has been a wonderful breakthrough for me. I have learned so much more than I have with any other medium or course or book, CD system or internet system. I have tried other expensive courses but they didn't teach me how to manipulate the language for myself, or why certain grammar rules exist. I have also tried many other mediums, ultimately leaving me no more fluent than I was before. I learned a few more phrases and words, but no rules of grammar to make my own sentences and expressions, and living in Iowa, USA, I don't get much practice in speaking, so I like listening to your podcast over and over again and I speak along with you, and actually feel that I'm making real progress.James Asher
As an advanced Spanish speaker and intermediate in French, I have used Radio Lingua's Coffee Break Spanish and Coffee Break French. However, I barely knew a single word of German before embarking on Coffee Break German course. Each lesson is well structured with conversation, vocabulary and essential grammar. The Cultural Correspondent feature is an interesting edition - definitely the right decision. The video flashcards are particularly useful as you see the words written as they are spoken. The bonus audio has more conversation and vocabulary, together with a useful test. The written lesson guide builds into an excellent textbook. This is the best Radio Lingua product I have come across and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone seeking to learn, or improve, their German.DFWC2002
