Hi Kaylene,


Thank you for your feedback! It is important to

us.👍


I will forward your comments to our team and I agree, a sample sentence

for the vocab "krank" should ideally contain the actual word.

As for "gruselig", I noticed that there are two more samples that contain the

word in question - beängstigend. I thought it a nice gesture to give our learners

an alternative, a chance to increase their vocabulary even more(?).


What you say about the pronunciation of "g" as "~ich", that's amazing to me.

You sure are a good listener. That is, however, a localized dialect. I am from Munich

and I don't use it. In "proper" high German it should definitely be pronounced as a "g".😉


Thanks again.


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

This was an interesting list, but I found it annoying that words ending with g, are pronounced g, not ‘ich’ as is correct in German. Also, two example sentences didn’t even use the word which was being taught.

beängstigend - the word ‘gruselige’ (creepy) was used in the example

And

krank - the word Grippe was used, and it was not even a complete sentence.
