Hello Drew,


Thank you for posting.

Apple cider can refer to non-alcoholic beverage as well.

Hi GP101,


Apfelschorle would not translate to Apple Cider in English. Maybe you mean apple soda!


Apple cider is an alcoholic drink made from apples!

There's no way to bring up the Lesson Materials in this lesson. The 1-2-3 circles are missing. Did any one else notice this?

Hallo Herr Stuart,


This is a good suggestion, I will pass it on to our content team.+


Actually, I do not see a difference in the meaning your inlaws gave you to the one we used... both are Apfelschorle to me.

It would be very helpful if you would always give the gender of every noun you use when introduced


I am currently visiting my inlaws in Germany and they disagree with your definition. Die Apfelschorle is not Apple cider. It is apple cider or apple juice ( most accept the two terms synonymous) mixed with Sprudelwasser. Please comment.
