The first time I went out with a German girl I didn’t imagine how awkward would it be to invite the girl for a dinner and go out to dance. So I used my usual skills to get a girl from my home town. I’m from Latin America, so I really didn’t think it would be so different from us… Big mistake. When we first met, I kissed her cheek to greet her, obviously she freaked out. To make it shorter, the date was a mess. Finally, I found Germanpod101, it was incredible how many things I could learned if I would’ve chose this method before. All those details of German culture are given in the lessons and for sure, I would’ve get that girl if I chose Germanpod101 in the past.
I enjoy learning foreign languages and came across your GermanPod101.com site and tried it out. I really like it and find it almost addictive. Each night I do a couple lessons before going to bed. Only knew a couple words a few months ago and now after a couple months I now have quite a vocabulary and can now read basic German. You have a great way of learning how to spell German words.
Thank God there is “Top25 German Questions you should know” and the Survival Phrases Series, they’re such a blast for me and for all the learners fond of the German language and culture !
All in all, I insist on emphasizing once more the huge impact GermanPod101 had and still has on me, on my professional knowledge (lately I have enrolled on a “Deutsch für den Beruf” course and I enjoy it in the real sense of the word.
GermanPod101.com ist einfach klasse und megageil!!!
Vielen herzlichen Dank für alles !!! Just keep up the good work because you make us some happy learners.
GermanPod101 has been absolutely INVALUABLE during my 5 years years in Germany. Living and working among Americans in a military community, the opportunity to learn and practice German is limited for a civilian mom like myself. I’ve downloaded countless podcasts to my iPod and listen to them EVERYWHERE. It has helped me TREMENDOUSLY and has enabled me to understand and communicate far more than I ever could have otherwise. I find the cultural insights are “right on the money” and they have enabled me to understand and appreciate more about my host nation customs. The format of dialogue, repetition, translation works very well and the grammar points with emphasis vocabulary and phrase usage are extremely helpful. Listening to Chuck and Judith is always great fun too! When I hear Chuck speak German with a good old American “accent,” I don’t feel so bad about my own pronunciation! In summary, GermanPod101 has been a lifesaver while here in Germany and has enabled me to feel more comfortable and enjoy my experience here. I have recommended the site to many friends and even to students I work with in both Middle and High School! Keep up the great work and thank you!
GermanPod101 has really helped me a lot in increasing my vocabulary as each day I learn a word and how to use it in a sentence. I go to my work and keep repeating it to myself and even use it with friends and when I have time. I listen to old lessons to review as well. The word of the day email lets me keeps me updated and keeps my mind fresh.To sum up, slowly but surely, it works. I thank Allah and the members of this site from my heart. It makes a difference to me while I’m in Germany.
