  • Stephanie Grill
    Stephanie Grill United States of America This course was a good intro to the German language. More sentence structure would be more helpful. And better photos to describe what was being asked. A cup of tea and a clock I wouldn't have guessed that meant taking a break. Other descriptions were a bit strange. Overall a great course! 2015-11-02 02:11:51
