  1. Loved this second episode of Coffee Break German! Last week I posted a brief message praisingthe Coffee Break German team on a great first episode but today’s episode really impressed me and raised the standard once again! I can’t wait until next Wednesday to learn more. Last week I also said that I was worried that Mark was not a “genuine learner” and that Thomas should have been directing the lesson. I have totally changed my mind about this! It’
    s much better that Mark takes control. He asks all the right questions that us anglophone listeners from all over the world are thinking. Excellent job! Bis bald! 😉

  2. Amazing! Learning a lot already. Really enjoyed this leson. Thank you to everyone who makes CBG! Love the intergration of the cultural, linguistic and grammar guru.

  3. Man, i love your show ! everything was perfect, can’t wait to the next episode . and Mark , you are a very very good student of a new language , the thing that you wouldn’t let any word Tomas says to slip and you ask for it is much appreciated .


    • Coming in a matter of minutes, if not seconds! Premium members received the lesson this afternoon, but we’ve been really busy today so we’re just updating the website with the free lesson now.

  4. I love the new German lessons, Thanks Mark! But I feel like it moves very quickly compared to coffee break Spanish. I like when single words are repeated multiple times to make sure you pronounce things properly with the right accent. Very often people in the states get lazy about this and their speaking is incomprehensible.

  5. This format is great. As someone whose been taking introductory German classes I’ve gained much knowledge in reading German but am not as comfortable speaking it. Your podcasts give me an opportunity to apply my lessons and hearing words pronounced in simple conversation is most helpful.
