  • Fettah Erdogan Canada It moves too fast. Also, you should consider speaking in English to the listener, occasionally. Reading German off the screen does not quite help. Moreover, some of the German sentences have been mistranslated into English. This is my feedback for your benefit/improvement and thank you for your efforts. 2015-03-21 21:03:01
