From Zero to One Hundred!

I liked the first book, and felt I was really on track to progressing into the second book, the collection of Short Stories. Talk about a disconnect. It’s like teaching a child how to ride a tricycle, then putting them in the cockpit of a NASA space shuttle for a solo flight. Why not pace the reader by transitioning into something understandable? Frustrating, and confidence crushing. I will probably be ready for these short stories after about another year of studies. Oh well.

Step by Step guide!

However, it's always hard at first but I know that if I would really put my heart in it, I will definitely succeed. What I also loved about this book is that it also teaches the hand gestures and I love the German way.
