What the students say...

Fiona MacPhail, mother of teenager Indy

"Dear Barbara, I just wanted to thank you and Sonja for soldiering on during this horrendous time. I know it is so very difficult to remain enthusiastic and motivated at the moment and having the lessons and indeed your newsletter brings much needed reminders of normality.

When learning German the daily contact with the language is one of the key elements of success. I started the Facebook project "Das deutsche Wort des Tages" with the busy student in mind. 30-50 seconds allow you to just watch the video and pick up the main word. 3-5 minutes allow you to watch it over again and learn a few related words of the same post.
