Hi Julie and Sascha,


Thank you for your feedback!


Me personally, I don't like that sentence. I think it's a question

of changing one's technique if we feel we can't remember things

(unless you are 70+ years old, when we all get problems retaining new things 😄).


GermanPod101 has several lessons covering techniques to improve your learning

experience. Use the magnifying glass at the top of the page to find more, but here is one

Hi Joe and Rash,


Thank you for your feedback.👍


A lack of time is a tricky one, depending on personal

preferences.

When it comes to finding someone to talk to, you may find

one of our tutor-based subscriptions helpful, or hook up with another learner

via a video conferencing software?


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,
