Student Testimonials

I've been studying German my own prior to this class and I found it very useful to receive pronunciation feedback and grammar explanations from a native speaker.

It was also good for me to work with other students to practice speaking German -- something you can't really recreate with a computer program like Duolingo or Rosetta Stone.
