    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 Some of the other, most famous programs I've used are outdated, stiff, and formal.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.

    Useful as supplement at best.

    This is useful as a supplement at best. Pitifully little practice opportunities. Somewhat rambling lectures. American presenter is hard to understand when speaking English because he speaks with his mouth too close to the microphone. There are better options.

    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.
