Great podcast. I listened to it for a minute and learned more than I have with hours of other podcasts. Fun and relaxed German learing. RedDevilsLad, iTunes US, August 08

This is great for all levels of ability in German. As an advanced speaker myself, I’m very excited to get some exposure to more idiomatic phrases than I normally would hear. Each lesson is presented clearly with a theme that helps with understanding and retention. Great job! Nate, iTunes US, June 08

I keep meaning to get round to improving my German, but most language courses are pretty dull. This one is presented in a clear, anjoyable way with ‘real’ day-to-day phrases. Definitely recommend it. DomBurkhalter, iTunes UK, July 08
