    Best program ever!

    I have purchased many brands of language programs and I speak several languages. Some of the other, most famous programs I've used are outdated, stiff, and formal.
    But this program is a breath of fresh air. It uses modern topics and vocabulary, interesting conversations, clear and detailed grammar explanations that don't overwhelm you, and insightful tips about the language. There is a fun synergy between the two speakers that keeps you engaged and comfortable.

    good help in learning German!

    What did you love best about Learn German - Level 5: Upper Beginner German, Volume 2: Lessons 1-40?

    the structure of the lessons and the small details and peculiarities on German culture. that was most useful!

    What about Widar Wendt’s performance did you like?

    the natural tone of the conversations

    OK but not inspiring

    Any additional comments?

    I previously learned German using Michel Thomas, and was very happy with that course. However Michel Thomas does little to expand your vocabulary or "get your ear in", so I thought I would try this one.

    It serves that purpose well enough, but as a way of starting to learn German I strongly recommend starting with Michel Thomas or Paul Noble because they are great at helping you to learn the structure of the language.

    In this course the dialogues tend to be unrealistic which admittedly is partly due to this being a beginners course, but coupled with the male narrators tendency to mumble both english and german I find myself constantly irritated.
